Tottenham Hotspur demolished Liverpool 4-1 last season at Wembley

Tottenham need to improve a lot if they are to be considered contenders for the Premier League title, manager Mauricio Pochettino said after their 2-1 defeat by Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday.

Goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris will miss the match, just as he did prior to the global break, after suffering a thigh strain.

Meanwhile, Dele Alli picked up a hamstring injury playing for England against Spurs, meaning the duo will miss this weekend's high profile tie.

Michel Vorm will continue in goal as a result of Lloris' absence-and the French goalkeeper is also under-fire after being sentenced due to a drink-driving incident.

"Of course, he's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good", Pochettino said. The staff, the club, the fans, us, and he said, "Any decision that you take gaffer or the club I think is fair". He made a mistake and he's suffering all the punishment of society.


"That doesn't show that we are arrogant and show that we don't accept the opinions of different people". He's the first, he told me, "Gaffer it's a massive lesson for me".

Asked whether Lloris, who was found to be twice the legal limit and had a passenger in the auto, would remain captain, Pochettino said: "Of course".

Pochettino said: "Harry has all the profile of the midfielder - ideal".

Spurs trail Premier League leaders Liverpool by three points but could move top for a few hours at least with victory at Wembley. "We competed, we were close and the last action was insane because it was a penalty", Pochettino told Sky Sports. He understands that it was a mistake. "I think he's fit, I have not read or heard what's going on around him, the most important thing for me is that we trust him".

"We all knew after the World Cup, especially when England went so far in the tournament, they had no rest".
