Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Hugo Lloris will play in tomorrow night’s Champions League fixture against Barcelona at Wembley.

The Spurs captain has not played since the 3-0 Premier League win against Manchester United at the end of August due to a knee problem, missing the last six matches in all competitions.

Lloris hit the headlines recently after being fined and banned for being ‘completely drunk’ while driving. He was spotted “veering” across Gloucester Place in central London in a new Porsche Panamera, doing 15mph in a 30mph zone, and going through a red light in the early hours of 24 August. He has since expressed his remorse for the incident.

Spurs are however without Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele and Serge Aurier who are all ruled out through injury.
