Injured Lloris a doubt for Tottenham's CL opener

Injured Lloris a doubt for Tottenham's CL opener

Hugo Lloris will be out for around four weeks with a hamstring injury and could miss Tottenham’s first match in this season’s Champions League.

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained the injury during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton and faces a race against time to be fit for Spurs’ European opener, which will be played on September 13 or 14.

The Frenchman is likely to sit out Tottenham’s next three Premier League matches, including home games against Crystal Palace and Liverpool, as well as a trip to Stoke.

A club statement read: “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.”
