We could be without France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for tomorrow’s premier league clash with Southampton.

An article by Sky Sports describes how Lloris missed training on Friday due to illness and Mauricio Pochettino said: “I don’t know about Hugo. It’s difficult to say, we need to wait and assess him. I think it is flu or a virus. Everyone with this weather will struggle a bit.”

There was of course better news for Spurs fans came when Mauricio confirmed Toby Alderweireld will return to training on Saturday.

The Belgian defender has been out since November with a hamstring problem but Mauricio is targeting next week’s FA Cup fourth-round match with Newport County as a possible comeback date.

“Regarding Toby hopefully he can integrate some exercise with the group on Saturday,” Pochettino said.We are going to have a very busy period and we need all the squad available to play.

Mauricio added; “If all is well he will do the warm-up with the team and will be integrated gradually with the group. He will be ready as soon as possible.  Maybe he will play in the FA Cup, we will have all the week and we will see if he is in good position to play.”
