Tottenham goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris is expected to sit out the rest of 2019 with a dislocated elbow. The only silver lining in the situation is that the Frenchman doesn’t require surgery.
Lloris was injured during Spurs’ 3-0 defeat at Brighton during Matchday 9.
He fell awkwardly as he failed to hold a third-minute cross from Pascal Gross and Neal Maupay nodded in the opening goal.
“Although surgery will not be required, our club captain has suffered ligament damage,” Spurs said in a statement.”He is not expected to return to training before the end of 2019. Hugo is currently in a brace and will now undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation.”
