Tottenham Hotspur will be preparing for their match with Liverpool on Saturday, however, they will not have two key men available for the Premier League clash.
According to the club’s official Twitter handle, Spurs will be without Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris for the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s side.
To make things worse for Mauricio Pochettino, the World Cup-winning goalkeeper could be set for an extended period on the sidelines as he looks to recover from a groin problem.
It has been claimed that Lloris could miss several weeks with the issue, which could mean he may miss some of their Champions League clashes as well, with a trip to Inter Milan on Tuesday.
Alli, who picked up his injury during the international break with England, is unavailable due to a hamstring injury, although there has not been any suggestion that he is a long-term concern.
The duo’s unavailability will come as a huge blow to Pochettino and Spurs this weekend as they prepare to face the Premier League leaders.
The pair play significant roles for the club on the field and both will be instantly missed by the north London outfit, although Tottenham will feel they can replace them suitably on the day.
Lloris will come as a bigger blow to the club as he is expected to miss several weeks of action, which could include parts of their Champions League campaign, which may give Spurs a tougher time in trying to qualify from their group.
