Xherdan Shaqiri 'looking forward' to Tottenham Hotspur clash

Xherdan Shaqiri relishing Reds' forthcoming fixture list

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita says it will take time to justify the £52 million fee the club paid for the Guinea global.

He missed Spurs' 2-1 defeat at Watford before the global break and France's Nations League matches against Germany and the Netherlands.

Tottenham will also be without Dele Alli, who picked up a hamstring injury on global duty with England.

Tottenham goalkeeper Lloris will be missing for several weeks with a thigh injury.

"He is going to do another scan to see how is the evolution of his injury", Pochettino told Sky Sports. "I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]".

"He is the first to regret about all that happened", Pochettino told reporters at the club's training ground ahead of Saturday's home clash with Liverpool.

'Of course he doesn't feel great.

The World Cup victor has been handed a 20-month driving ban and fined about £50,000, just over half of his weekly salary with the Lilywhites who also fined him £200,000.

Alli missed England's friendly win against Switzerland on Tuesday with a hamstring strain, and Spurs have confirmed he will play no part in their meeting with Jurgen Klopp's side at lunchtime on Saturday.

The Premier League club said any disciplinary action they might take would remain an internal matter.

"But I think everyone can make a mistake". He is punishing himself.

Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League after they lost 2-1 to Watford, while Liverpool are top, having won all four games. Only we need to try, how he understands that it was a mistake.
