Lucky Lloris will refocus on football after life lesson, says Pochettino

Guardian - tor, 13/09/2018 - 23:34
• Goalkeeper and Dele Alli will miss Liverpool game on Saturday
• Spurs unhappy over Alli injury suffered with England

Mauricio Pochettino believes Hugo Lloris ought to count himself fortunate he did not cause a serious accident in his moment of drink-drive madness. The Tottenham captain pleaded guilty to the offence at Westminster magistrates court on Wednesday and he was fined £50,000 while also receiving a 20-month driving ban. Tottenham have fined him two weeks’ wages – roughly £250,000.

Lloris is out with a thigh injury and he will miss Saturday’s game against Liverpool at Wembley. He is a major doubt for Tuesday’s Champions League tie at Internazionale. Pochettino will also be without Dele Alli against Liverpool, after the midfielder damaged a hamstring playing for England against Spain last Saturday, and there are fears he could miss Inter and next Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

Liverpool now have the defence they need to win away at their title rivals

Liverpool lost at all four of their closest challengers last season but that was before Robertson, Van Dijk and Keïta joined forces

By Martin Laurence for WhoScored

The Premier League returns with a bang on Saturday, when Tottenham host top-of-the-table Liverpool at Wembley in the lunchtime kick-off. This fixture has always been important for Jürgen Klopp. His first game in English football, in October 2015, was a goalless draw at White Hart Lane. More than half of the players who represented Liverpool that day have since left the club – Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho, Lucas Leiva, Emre Can, Joe Allen, Philippe Coutinho and Jordon Ibe – and Klopp has continued to use his visits to Spurs to refine his squad.

When the sides met at Wembley last October, Spurs ran out comfortable 4-1 winners, though that heavy defeat proved something of a catalyst for Liverpool’s season. It left them ninth in the table after as many games, with just three wins and a negative goal difference. The defeat was yet another reminder of Liverpool’s defensive inadequacies, with Simon Mignolet committing costly mistakes and Dejan Lovren being unceremoniously hauled off before half time.

Spurs must kick their habit of letting in goals when seemingly in control, starting against Liverpool, at a time when every bad result threatens to undermine their project

Tottenham’s 4-1 win at Wembley against Liverpool last October was one of those games that stays in the memory long after the final whistle. It wasn’t just the result, although that of course was part of it.

This was a game that brought together a number of strands, in effect ending Spurs’ Wembley hoodoo, laying Liverpool’s defensive limitations so bare that Jürgen Klopp claimed they would have been better off with him at centre-back and cementing Son Heung-min’s status as a crowd favourite.
