Lloris hopes to return for Tottenham-Liverpool

Lloris hopes to return for Tottenham-Liverpool

Dele Alli will miss Tottenham's home clash with Liverpool on Saturday after he picked up a hamstring injury on worldwide duty.

"So playing in the Premier League can be hard, but I am very motivated to play here, not just for myself and my teammates, but for the club". But, of course, the game on Saturday will be completely different to [last season].

It can have a impact on concentration levels during that first game back, especially with such a short time to prepare.

"If you want to win Premier League titles then you have to win these games, so Liverpool will be judged on this too". What about lunch? Do you combine them? You don't give players a place in your team just because they're part of your squad.

I used to love playing late in the evening, it's when I felt at the top of my game and all my powers were there. It will be a very tough opponent.

"I'm the kind of person who thinks that if I score eight goals in one season my objective must be to score nine goals in the following season", he said. This pays out at around 20/1.

The former Manchester United defender added: "But it's a worry". Every player has career highlights, but doing that against a great rival was extra sweet. I can't see any problem with the way he's playing.

Despite his successes, Kane, by his own admission, might have returned from the World Cup with more than six goals and Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed the England captain was unhappy with his performances over the summer.

Tottenham were disappointing at Watford last time out, losing to two set piece goals.

"But as starts go, you can't ask for anything more and I do think we can get better".

Barnes said: "Well, would we rather get silverware and win the League Cup and finish 25 points behind City or finish second behind City by three points and not win silverware?".

If they can emerge with yet another three points, supporters will start to dream of lifting the title in May and Barnes insists that he couldn't be happier with the current state of affairs at Anfield.
