Hugo Lloris is hopeful of facing Liverpool on Saturday

Lloris will remain Tottenham Hotspur's captain when he returns from injury despite being convicted of drink driving, manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Thursday.

The Reds are busy preparing to take on Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday lunchtime as the Premier League returns following the global break.

The 23-year-old moved to Liverpool from RB Leipzig during the summer transfer window, and the Guinea global has appeared in all four of his new team's Premier League matches this season.

"He is the first to regret about everything and all that happened is not good".

The 31-year-old Frenchman was banned from driving for 20 months and fined £50,000 following his guilty plea. He made a mistake & has suffered the punishment of society.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita says it will take time to justify the £52 million fee the club paid for the Guinea worldwide. He is punishing himself.

Tony Finau gets final Ryder Cup pick from Jim Furyk
Tony Finau has been selected for the American Ryder Cup team as Jim Furyk's fourth and final captain's pick. He checked a lot of boxes and made it impossible not to pick him.

"I've been told by many people that a lot of overseas players come into the Premier League and they take time to integrate, depending on the circumstances", he said.

"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".

When asked if he would stay on as captain, Pochettino said: "Of course".

He added: "Lloris will have another scan to see the evolution of his injury".

The World Cup victor started Tottenham's first three games in the Premier League this term, leading the club to a flawless start.

Alli completed the full ninety minutes during England's opening defeat to Spain in the Nations League last weekend but it soon emerged that the midfielder had sustained a muscle problem during the game.
