Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that both Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris will miss Saturday’s clash with Liverpool at Wembley.
It’s fifth against first in Saturday’s early Premier League game, with the Reds currently holding a three-point advantage as Tottenham look to end Liverpool’s 100 per cent record.
But they will have to do it without two key players, who are missing due to injury, with Pochettino admitting Alli and Lloris will play no part against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Alli sat out England’s midweek friendly win over Switzerland in Leicester, having picked up a muscle strain, and despite treatment the 22-year-old will miss Saturday’s big game.
Meanwhile, Lloris was absent for the recent 2-1 defeat at Watford before missing France’s international fixtures against Germany and the Netherlands due to a thigh problem.
His absence means Michel Vorm is expected to start between the posts at Wembley, while Son Heung-min could replace Alli after returning from international duty at the Asian Games.
