Hugo Lloris will remain as Tottenham captain on return from injury

The 31-year-old missed Spurs' Premier League game at Watford on 2 September and both of France's matches during the global break.

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a double injury blow ahead of a key week with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and midfielder Dele Alli ruled out for Saturday's Premier League clash with Liverpool and a Champions League trip to Inter Milan on Tuesday.

Hugo Lloris will keep the Tottenham captaincy despite admitting guilt to a drink driving charge earlier this week, Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed.

'Of course. He's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good. He doesn't feel great.

Lloris was on Monday fined £50,000 ($65,000) and handed a 20-month driving ban for drink-driving. He made a mistake and is suffering, and is punishing himself. "I'm very motivated to be playing in it - it's an attractive proposition - but I've been told by many people that a lot of overseas players come into the Premier League and they take time to integrate, depending on the circumstances".

Asked if the World Cup victor would remain as captain, Pochettino said: "Of course". "I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]".

He added: "Lloris will have another scan to see the evolution of his injury".

Despite these two high profile absences, Spurs will still harbour hopes of ending Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season, with their 4-1 dismantling of the Reds in the same fixture last season providing ample confidence.

Alli completed the full ninety minutes during England's opening defeat to Spain in the Nations League last weekend but it soon emerged that the midfielder had sustained a muscle problem during the game.
