Meanwhile, Hugo Lloris will remain Tottenham captain, despite being sentenced for drink-driving this week.

The Frenchman, who now has a thigh injury, was fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months for the offence which occurred in August.

The Argentine boss confirmed Lloris would continue in the captain's role and again insisted the goalkeeper regrets the incident after he was banned from driving for 20 months on Wednesday and fined £50k.

"Of course we have a conversation and he explained what happened".

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has defended Harry Kane's form, branding the star striker an "easy target" for criticism.

You can be sure Spurs will have their own detailed data and conclusions about Kane and, beneath all the noisy perceptions, that will tell us much about both what makes him so good and this dip.

Spurs will have Heung-min Son available after his lengthy stint on global duty with South Korea.

Forecasters said Florence's surge could cover all but a sliver of the Carolina coast under as much as 11 feet of sea water. The father was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center for treatment, where no update was provided on his condition.

"If there was a time to start Son, he's just won a trophy, he would be on an incredible high and I thought that would have been the ideal game to put him in".

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. "There was a lack of pace and confidence and that surprised me because when you play with a defensive line with a lot of experience, you should show more confidence in your skill".

Pochettino was critical of his players' attitude after the loss at Vicarage Road but was more satisfied in that regard against Liverpool.

"In some periods they were better and showed more individual quality in moments and they created more chances because they were good". Don't worry for me - we need to be anxious for the real things. I am happy with all the players.

"A good pre-season should be at least three or four weeks", said Klopp.

"We are disappointed because we're going to miss him for this game and possibly Inter Milan in the Champions League, but it is not a big issue".
