Tottenham’s French defender Hugo Lloris is expected to be out for around four weeks with a hamstring injury which means he will miss some key matches for the North London club.
The injury which occurred during Spurs’ opening game of the season means he could miss Tottenham’s first match in this season’s Champions League.
He is likely to miss Tottenham’s next three Premier League matches, including home games against Crystal Palace and Liverpool, as well as a trip to Stoke.
A club have said: “Following further assessment and scans of the left hamstring injury sustained by Hugo Lloris in the 1-1 draw at Everton on Saturday, we can confirm he is expected to be out of action for around four weeks.”
It was not the start Lloris and his team had hoped for – He got replaced by Michel Vorm in the first half at Goodison Park.
Things didn’t look good when he reacted slowly to Ross Barkley’s free-kick.
The Tottenham captain has been one of the club’s stars since Mauricio Pochettino has taken charge and is key to the club building on last season’s success.
Lloris is also set to miss France’s friendly against Italy on September 1 and a World Cup qualifier against Belarus on September 6.
