Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be out for "several weeks" with a thigh injury, but will retain the captaincy after his drink-drive conviction.

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's global commitments over the past week.

Looking to bounce back from their defeat against Watford before the worldwide break, Spurs will be without Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris against Liverpool on Saturday, with the pair suffering from thigh and hamstring injuries respectively.

Although Winks underwent surgery in the summer, manager Mauricio Pochettino said the 22-year-old has a "chronic" problem and will always feel some discomfort. I made a mistake.

"He's punishing himself. But of course we're not God, that we can judge people".

But that wasn't to be the last of their shocks, as Son Heung-min went down under a heavy and rather clumsy challenge from Sadio Mane in the dying embers of the game.

'That's why expectations and perspective are completely different to other players.

Under our assessment, he's ready to play'. In the eyes of many fans they've overtaken City as the frontrunners in the title race this season, and as you can imagine, that has a lot of fans anxious as to whether or not they can hack that kind of pressure.

"He's a little bit unlucky", Pochettino told Sky Sports News.

"When you lose, yes of course you need to talk about different things, but I'm not anxious".

I think it is a situation that is under control I think but we respect all opinion and maybe some opinions are different to us.

We're going to miss him for this game and possibly Inter Milan in the Champions League'.
