Lloris was convicted for drink-driving after being pulled over in his auto and breathalysed - which revealed he had over double the legal alcohol limit in his system while at the wheel.

Pochettino also insists he has no concerns about the form of Harry Kane, who has made a sluggish start to the season after his World Cup exertions. Lloris was one of the heroes of France's commanding march to their second football World Cup in 20 years.

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