Hugo Lloris out until 2020 – but Spurs keeper will not need surgery
- The Frenchman World Cup-winning goalkeeper fell awkwardly after failing to collect a cross, which allowed Neal Maupay to open the scoring.
Spurs confirmed the injury later that evening but had not put a timescale on a possible return.
However, after more tests, it was confirmed the 32-year-old is expected to miss the remainder of 2019.
- Deschamps told a press conference: “He has had tests. It is difficult to say how long he will be out”
“Processes will be put in place for his rehabilitation. We are talking several weeks, indeed several months.”
- On the other hand Mauricio Pochettino (Spurs coach) admits the early signs are ‘not good’ regarding Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris
“Through the website we’ll update and explained what happened. But of course, it’s not good news. I think he has suffered a big issue.”
The injury came after Lloris made yet another howler, dropping the ball on his goal-line and allowing Maupay to nod into the empty net.
Brighton youngster Aaron Connolly then piled more misery on Pochettino by scoring on his first Premier League start either side of half-time.
