"I don't know (if Vorm will play or not) - it is the gaffer's decision," the France captain said.

"At the moment, we are not thinking about this final. The best way to prepare for this game is to take it game by game."

Asked if he would like to play, Lloris said after a pause: "Your question is really easy question to answer. Everyone (does).

"But, as I said, it is the manager's decision. There is a great mentality in the squad."

Former England captain David Beckham has tipped in-form Tottenham striker Harry Kane to get a call-up in Roy Hodgson's next England squad.

Kane starred again for Spurs after hitting a brace to win the north London derby against Arsenal last weekend.

“Being English, and seeing someone like Harry and the way he’s playing and the way he’s played this season, he’s having a stunning year,” said Beckham.

“I think everyone is singing his praises, and rightly so. He’s 21 years old, he’s working hard and has got a good head on his shoulders, so we will see.”

Beckham today announced the launch of humanitarian charity Unicef's 7 fund - named after the former England footballer's shirt number - which aims to protect millions of children around the world from danger as he celebrates 10 years as a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador.

Mousa Dembele believes the best is yet to come at Tottenham, even suggesting they are capable of challenging for the title in the coming years.

Asked if this Spurs team, should they be kept together, are capable of challenging for the title in the coming years, the Belgian said: "Yeah, you see as well how the club works now, the feeling that they want to keep a lot of players here.

"They extended the contract as well, so it is a very positive thing because the players that you saw now that have extended their contract are very good players, young players as well, who in the future will make massive progression.

"It is a very good think for everyone. Everybody knows if the team is together for a long time, it gets easier and easier."

Harry Kane was on cloud nine after his double earned Tottenham a 2-1 north London derby win over Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

The striker tapped home the equaliser before netting an 86th-minute winner with a superb header as Spurs fought back from conceding an early opener to Mesut Ozil.

Kane, who has now scored 22 goals in all competitions this season, told BT Sport 1: "That feeling is one I definitely won't forget for the rest of my career.

"My first north London derby, to win the way we did, it's incredible. I probably won't sleep tonight."

Kane's rise this season has been meteoric, but the 21-year-old insists he is having no problem keeping his feet on the ground.

"I enjoy my football," he said. "Just play with a smile on your face, do the best you can, work as hard as you can for the team. It's been working well for us as a team, an incredible bunch of lads, the spirit's high.

"I just want to be out on that pitch, playing with my mates. We are playing very well, we just want the next game to come."

Kane's team-mate Ryan Mason hailed the Tottenham fans, saying: "I don't think there will be many better atmospheres around the world than what it was today."
