Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been fined 50,000 pounds (65,000 USA dollars) and banned from driving for 20 months after pleading to driving while under the influence of alcohol.

The 31-year-old missed Spurs' Premier League game at Watford on 2 September and both of France's matches during the worldwide break. Tottenham will also be without Dele Alli after he picked up a hamstring injury on worldwide duty.

Speaking to the press ahead of Spurs" game against Liverpool on Sunday, Pochettino said: "He apologised to everyone.

"Of course he doesn't feel great". He made a mistake and he's suffered the punishment.

"We are not God, we can't judge people". "He knows only too well that it shouldn't happen, but it happened and it's not going to change what I think about him and the Hugo Lloris that I've always known", said Deschamps.

Lloris will remain captain when he returns from injury despite being convicted of drink driving, manager Mauricio Pochettino said yesterday.

National Hurricane Center (NHC) provided the latest update on Hurricane Florence at 8 a.m. on September 12. Puerto Rico is still trying to recover from Hurricane Maria almost a year after the Category 4 storm hit.

Southgate believes that the 22-year-old, who has returned to Spurs for further treatment, should be able to feature against Liverpool this weekend.

Shortly after his arrest last month, Pochettino kept faith with Lloris as retained the captaincy in the 3-0 win at Manchester United.

The World Cup victor suffered the injury during August's win over Manchester United.

"We are disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe against Inter in the Champions League".

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

"He's a little but unlucky", Pochettino told Sky Sports News.
