Tottenham Hotspur have been hit with a major blow this afternoon after it was revealed that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has picked up a hamstring injury.
The goalkeeper suffered the injury during the opening game of the season against Everton at Goodison Park.
The club have sent the club captain for scans which have revealed he will be out of action for around four weeks, which will likely keep him out of the clubs opening Champions League game next month, as well as League fixtures agains Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Stoke and Sunderland.
A statement on the club website read:
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.
Dutch goalkeeper Michel Vorm is expected to deputise in Lloris’ absence.
