Hugo Lloris will be out for up to eight weeks after suffering a knee injury in Tottenham’s 1-0 win against Manchester City.
Tottenham will be without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for six to eight weeks after he suffered a knee injury in last Sunday’s 1-0 win against Manchester City.
The French goalkeeper received the injury in Sunday’s 1-0 triumph against Manchester City and will be out for some time.
Scans revealed that he is suffering a ligament injury as a result of a late-game challenge, although Lloris is not anticipating to require surgery.
Fraser Forster will now take over as Spurs reach a critical period in their season over the next three weeks.
They play Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday before returning to the Champions League against AC Milan the following week, followed by London derbies against West Ham and Chelsea.
Forster, who joined on a free transfer from Southampton last summer, has played just four times and made one Premier League appearance – a 2-2 draw with Brentford on Boxing Day.
Despite the fact that he is feeling guilty for several blunders this season, we can feel Lloris’ absence.
He has four errors that have directly resulted in goals, the most in the Premier League, and will be dissatisfied with a number of other saves he has failed to make in recent games.
The 36-year-old, who just retired from international football with France after the World Cup, has been a cornerstone of the Tottenham Hotspur team despite sustaining a serious injury in October 2019.
