Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli will both miss Tottenham’s Premier League game against Liverpool this weekend through injury, with Lloris set to miss “several weeks” of action.

Alli missed England’s friendly victory over Switzerland on Tuesday with a muscle strain and hasn’t recovered in time to face Liverpool, the club confirmed on Twitter.

In weekly press conference, Mauricio Pochettino also admitted – according to journalist Dan Kilpatrick – Alli could miss next week’s Champions League opener against Inter Milan at the San Siro.

Lloris was absent for Spurs’ defeat to Watford earlier this month and subsequently missed France’s fixtures during the international break.

And Tottenham have now confirmed the skipper – who has retained the captaincy despite a recent drink-driving charge – will be out for several weeks.

Alli was on the scoresheet in last season’s 4-1 win over Liverpool at Wembley, while Lloris made a fine save from Philippe Coutinho to keep things comfortable for the hosts.

Spurs will be rueing the fact two key players will be absent for such a big game, but the return of Heung-Min Son could cushion the blow.

  2. please give Gazzanigga a chance Poch . His only game was against Crystal Palace about 18 months ago and he was my man of the match ! He saved us on several occasions , and we went on to win by the odd goal , although we did not deserve it perhaps .
