Prosecutor Henry Fitch said Lloris veered his vehicle toward parked cars before running a red light.

"First of all I want to say that they deserved the victory", Pochettino said.

"He doesn't feel great. Today if you make a lot of mistakes then of course against Liverpool, one of the best teams in Europe, you will be punished".

"He's punishing himself, but of course we're not God, that we can judge people".

'He's the first, he told me, "Gaffer, it's a massive lesson for me. I made a mistake and now I need to pay".

According to Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, Alli suffered the injury during the early stages of England's UEFA Nations League clash with Spain but still played every minute of the 2-1 defeat.

Son, who was returning from his triumphant stint with South Korea at the Asian Games, drifted dangerously into the box and was caught late by the right boot of Mane just as he was about to pull the trigger.

Speaking to the press ahead of Spurs" game against Liverpool on Sunday, Pochettino said: "He apologised to everyone. I am happy with all the players.

Forward Heung-min Son is available, but unlikely to play a big part after participating in the Asian Games, immediately followed by this worldwide break. "It's not a moment to take risks now".

The Belgian defender looked set for Manchester United after he failed to agree a new contract. "I never talk about situations, that maybe yes or maybe no, the club is dealing or working".

Pochettino rejected suggestions Kane is tired, stating it is only a matter of time before the Tottenham striker is back to his goalscoring best.

We are the coaching staff at Tottenham and we try to take the best decision for the player.

"It's our fifth season at Tottenham and if someone knows him really well I think we do". Don't worry for me - we need to be anxious for the real things.
