Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris injured his hamstring during Saturday’s draw at Everton.
The France international was forced off after just 35 minutes of the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park, after initially falling awkwardly while trying to save Ross Barkley’s opening goal of the contest.
The 29-year-old, who only missed one Premier League match last season, was replaced by Michel Vorm on Merseyside, with Pochettino confirming after the game that the stopper had injured his hamstring, but he was unsure about the severity of the problem.
He said: “It is his hamstring. We need to assess tomorrow and then we see what happen. His injury had an impact on us and they scored very early, and we did not play very well in the first half.”
Spurs are next in action when they play host to London rivals Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane on Saturday, but it remains to be seen whether their captain will be able to feature in the match.
