Michel Vorm will deputise for captain Lloris, who this week pleaded guilty to drink-driving in London and was fined £50,000.

Lloris was convicted for drink-driving after being pulled over in his vehicle and breathalysed - which revealed he had over double the legal alcohol limit in his system while at the wheel. "Of course, he doesn't feel great".

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he is set to be without captain Hugo Lloris and playmaker Dele Alli for this weekends clash against Liverpool.

"Of course he's punishing himself. Now I need to pay like a man".

Lloris, who was sentenced for a drink-driving charge earlier this week, suffered the problem in August's win over Manchester United. All the women, men, people can make a mistake.

"That is a massive lesson for everyone".

There had been indications from the bank that it would raise rates after inflation came in at almost 18 percent in August.

Joshua Harris, director of campaigns for British road safety charity Brake, said it was disappointing to see a role model such as Lloris admitting to breaking the law by drink driving. "It's not a moment to take risks now".

"He's the first [to accept it was a mistake], he told me, "Gaffer, it's a massive lesson for me". Because he is a clever, he learns and now he is going to move on'.

"Because when we saw in the past that different clubs didn't allow [him] to go to play in this tournament".

Meanwhile, midfielder Moussa Sissoko is expected to return to training next week after a hamstring injury.

"He [Alli] suffered a small injury after 20 minutes of the game against Spain at Wembley", Pochettino said. I told him today where is my present Sonny?

"(We are) disappointed because we are going to miss him for maybe this game and against Inter Milan in Champions League", said Pochettino.
