Tottenham: Vorm ready to step upTottenham: Vorm ready to step up

Lloris is facing a spell on the sidelines with the hamstring injury he suffered in the opening-day draw at Everton and former Swansea man Vorm is set to step in

The Netherlands international performed well when coming on at Goodison Park and says he’s ready to do his bit for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

He said: “These are the moments that I have to be ready for and I don’t get fazed by it with the experience that I have.

“You always have to keep in mind that something might happen, it hasn’t in the last few seasons, it did here. You can see again that something can change in a minute.

“It always strange when you have to come on in these circumstances, but if you can make an impact in a positive result then happy days!”

Lloris 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, while he also faces a race against time to be fit for Spurs’ European opener which will be played on September 13 or 14.

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.”
