Tottenham Hotspur Handed A Boost: Dele Alli Fit For Liverpool Clash

Pochettino confirms Lloris will remain Spurs captain after drink-drive sentence

A few days after he was charged, Lloris kept a clean sheet during a 3-0 win for Spurs against Manchester United at Old Trafford, however he was absent for their 2-1 defeat to Watford and missed France's recent global games due to a thigh injury. "He made a first mistake - he chose to drive". It is a massive lesson for everyone.

"He's the first [to accept it was a mistake], he told me, "Gaffer, it's a massive lesson for me".

The Tottenham and France goalkeeper attended a hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday after he was stopped by police on August 24.

The Spurs boss said yesterday the France World Cup victor will remain as club captain despite his conviction this week and even though Lloris admitted he would understand if it was taken from him.

Some fans and pundits called for Lloris to be stripped of the Spurs captaincy following his guilty plea, but Pochettino does not feel it necessary to take the armband off him. Meanwhile, Dele Alli picked up a hamstring injury playing for England against Spurs, meaning the duo will miss this weekend's high profile tie.

Apple Watch might be getting an always-on display feature
Putting an always-on mode on the Apple Watch will obviously drain its battery much faster, therefore, limiting its usability. According to the latest patent reports , the upcoming Apple Watch will ship with an integrated incoming always-on display.

It means the Frenchman's deputy Michel Vorm is set for an extended spell in the team and is likely to play in the glamour games against Inter Milan and Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League, while Alli is also expected to miss Tuesday's tie with the Serie A side. "Hopefully it will be OK and he will be available again soon like Dele Alli".

Manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed on Thursday that the French goalkeeper will remain Spurs skipper, despite being fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months after being caught more than twice over the legal limit.

He denied the forward needs a rest, adding: "We know that it's not a situation that worries us".

"It's not that I want to justify him, it's only because the period during the season always change".
