Hugo Lloris will remain as Tottenham captain on return from injury

Xherdan Shaqiri relishing Reds' forthcoming fixture list

Xherdan Shaqiri relishing Reds' forthcoming fixture list

He said he is guilty of this situation and is responsible.

England coach Gareth Southgate had said he expected him to have recovered by the time Spurs took on Liverpool, but Pochettino has confirmed that is not the case.

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.

Tottenham's skipper admitted being more than twice the drink drive limit when police stopped his Porsche Panamera in London at 2am on August 24. He made a mistake and is suffering, and is punishing himself.

'Of course, ' Pochettino said. Then we're all humans and we can all make mistakes. It's a massive lesson to everyone'. Like a man that he is, he is going to accept everything'.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has claimed that he is in pristine condition to face Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday in the Premier League after returning to Melwood from worldwide duty.

The 26-year-old has played just 27 minutes in the league across two substitute appearances but with a series of tough fixtures coming up for Liverpool, Carragher feels that Shaqiri could be a crucial squad player - and hailed the transfer as a "brilliant buy".

Pochettino also insists he has no concerns about the form of Harry Kane, who has made a sluggish start to the season after his World Cup exertions. There is no doubt he is one of the best in England and Europe. I am not disappointed with him. As he is such a big player and everyone expects something from every action, so his expectations are different'.
