Spurs boss plans to start Hugo Lloris versus Liverpool


Hugo Lloris news

Pochettino likely to start Lloris versus Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino reportedly has no plans to exclude goalkeeper Hugo Lloris from his weekend's Premier League meeting against Liverpool.

Earlier on Wednesday, the France international pleaded guilty to a drink-driving charge and this has resulted in a £50,000 fine in addition to a 20-month driving ban.

Spurs are likely to follow this up with a hefty fine of around £250,000 but The Mail reports that this may not affect the shot-stopper's inclusion in the starting lineup versus Liverpool.

Lloris missed the previous league meeting against Watford as well as France's internationals versus Germany and the Netherlands with a thigh injury but he is widely expected to return to fitness during the week.

Meanwhile, the north Londoners are said to have no plans of stripping the Frenchman from the captaincy despite him pleading guilty for the drink-driving offence.

Tottenham are currently fifth in the Premier League standings with nine points. Their most recent game ended in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Watford.
