Lloris hopes to face Liverpool

11 September 2018 05:58:11 EST

France international Hugo Lloris insists he could return to action for Tottenham on Saturday when Liverpool visit Wembley.

Lloris missed Spurs' 2-1 defeat at Watford earlier this month because of a thigh injury and also sat out his country's recent fixtures against Germany and Netherlands.

The 31-year-old said: "I am working hard to get back as quickly as possible.

"There may be a chance this weekend but we will see how much progress is made during the week."

Meanwhile, Christian Eriksen says everyone wants to play like Spurs after admitting that Denmark are keener to use the long ball than Mauricio Pochettino's side.

Eriksen scored twice in Denmark's 2-0 Nations League win against Wales on Sunday and has found the net 15 times in his last 18 international appearances.

The 26-year-old said: "I'm a little bit further up the pitch [with Denmark] and not so much involved in the build-up because we probably have less of a build-up than we do at Spurs.

"It's a bit different with Denmark, we go for the long ball a bit earlier and try to get the second ball.

"Everyone wants to play like Spurs. We want to play attractive football, get the ball forward and create chances with good possession."

Pochettino's team are 21/10 to inflict a first Premier League defeat of the campaign on Liverpool this weekend and 7/2 to keep a clean sheet in the match.

Spurs can be backed at 5/6 to finish in the top four this term while Liverpool are 9/4 to win the 2018/19 Premier League title.
