Moment Spurs Goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris Suffered Horrific Injury

Moment Spurs Goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris Suffered Horrific Injury

Lloris failed to hold an inswinging cross from Pascal Gross, falling awkwardly backwards as Neal Maupay gave the Seagulls a third minute lead in the English Premier League match Saturday.

- Only Asmir Begovic (21) has made more errors leading to goals than Tottenham's Lloris (18) in the Premier League since his debut in the competition in October 2012.

The Old Trafford outfit was unable to acquire the services of the Denmark global after a late bid was tabled in the last summer transfer window, but the club believes they have a better chance of signing the midfielder in the coming window.

To make matters worse, Lloris suffered a serious arm injury in his fall, which saw him eventually leave the pitch on a stretcher with gas and air and screaming in agony. Lloris was then transferred to a nearby hospital.

The majority of the Spurs fans who reacted to the injury on social media were sympathetic and supportive, but there were still some who could not forgive the mistake the 32-year-old, especially as their side ended up losing 3-0 after another low-key performance, which bordered on rancid.

Another terrible error by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris led to Tottenham conceding inside three minutes, the goal compounded by the France captain sustaining a serious elbow injury and requiring oxygen as he was carried off the field.

"Assessment will continue this coming week to ascertain the full extent of the injury and the length of time he will require to undergo rehabilitation", read the statement.

"He is not expected to return to training before the end of 2019.

The club will communicate what has happened, but there is no good news", said Pochettino. A serious-looking injury to goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris capped a hard afternoon for last season's Champions League finalists, who are without an away Premier League victory in nine months. To concede and lose your captain is a massive impact emotionally and for the team.

"Eric Dier clearly was not fit to play on Saturday and Moussa Sissoko was out of position at right back".

This period has seen them being dumped out of the Carabao Cup to League Two side Colchester United before suffering a humiliating 7-2 home loss in the Champions League at Bayern Munich's hands. Pochettino is in his sixth year as Tottenham manager, sparking fears he has taken the team as far as he can and that things have gone stale at the club amid tensions in the squad.

"We're very clear, but it was a little less clear to me in Montenegro".
