Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed that their number one goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris will be out for about 4 weeks due to a hamstring injury.
Spurs said on their website that their captain will be missed for four weeks and he is likely to miss games against Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Sunderland.
“Our captain left the field during the first half at Goodison Park and our medical team will continue to monitor his progress during his rehabilitation to determine when he will be ready to return to training”, read part of their statement.
Lloris limped out of Spurs’ opening day game against Everton at Goodison Park, and scans confirmed that damage to his left hamstring will keep him out for almost a month. The game at Goodison Park ended in a draw.
That will rule Lloris out for two crucial home league games: Crystal Palace on Saturday 20 August and then Liverpool on Saturday 27.
Michel Vorm is likley to deputise in Lloris’ absence.
Hugo Lloris played every game for France as they reached the Euro 2016 final earlier this summer and he has been instrumental between the posts at Tottenham.
