England’s Dele Alli and France’s Hugo Lloris have both been ruled out of Tottenham’s clash with Premier League leaders, Liverpool, on Saturday due to injury.

Lloris, who was sentenced for a drink-driving charge on Wednesday, could be out of action for several weeks with a thigh injury.

The World Cup winner suffered the injury during August’s win over Manchester United.

On his part, Alli suffered a hamstring injury while on international dut with England.

“[Dele] Alli is a bit unlucky, he suffered a small injury after 20 minutes against Spain,”  Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

“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.

“Hugo Lloris will have another scan to see the evolution of his injury.

“Hopefully, it will be OK and he will be available again soon, like Dele.”
