Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm will both miss the Carabao Cup fixture against Watford tomorrow at Stadium MK.

Club captain Lloris has been sidelined with a thigh injury since after the victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford, while his replacement Michel Vorm missed the 2-1 at Brighton on Saturday after sustaining a knee injury in training the day before.

Paulo Gazzaniga proved to be more than capable once again of filling the void of Lloris when he took his place between the posts against Brighton, which was only his second senior appearance for the club following a Man of the Match display against Crystal Palace last November.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino revealed last week that it had always been his intention to play Gazzaniga in the Carabao Cup.

The Spurs boss told Football.London: “I don’t believe Michel is going to be ready for Wednesday. But the way, in our mind was to give him [Gazzaniga] the cup of course, that was the plan before what happened with Michel.”
