Tottenham Hotspur were initially expecting the captain to return swiftly, but a recent update by the club this afternoon has insisted he will be out for "several weeks".

Lloris was twice the legal limit when he was stopped for driving at 15mph in central London in the early hours of August 24.

Ahead of Saturday's important clash with Liverpool at Wembley, he said: "I am learning a lot, because we arrive after two weeks [of the worldwide break] and we didn't talk too much about Liverpool, and the most important thing is the game on Saturday". He made a mistake and he's suffering all the punishment of society. "We are not God, we can't judge people". Then we're all men and women and we can all make mistakes. He's the first, he told me, "Gaffer it's a massive lesson for me". Only we need to try [to ensure] that he understands and he understands that it was a mistake.

It means the Frenchman's deputy Michel Vorm is set for an extended spell in the team and is likely to play in the glamour games against Inter Milan and Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League, while Alli is also expected to miss Tuesday's tie with the Serie A side.

"The most thing here is the confidence and trust we have in him". He's one of the best strikers in the world. I am not disappointed with him.

"That's why the expectations and perspective are completely different to another player".
