I am new to copula and I would like figure out how to find the log-likelihood function of Clayton copula and the expectation (log-likelihood function)? Any help please?

You can find the density for the Clayton copula in this document. So, the log-likelihood, having observations $\{x_1,\ldots,x_n\}$ where $x_i = (u_i,v_i)$ is $$\ell(\delta,x) = \sum_{i=1}^n \log c(x_i, \delta).$$
