Tottenham Hotspur once again found themselves without their captain and first-choice keeper, Hugo Lloris, today as they welcomed Wolves to North London.
As always, Paulo Gazzaniga stepped into the side, but found himself picking the ball out of the net three times on a frustrating evening for the Argentine.
Clutching at straws, perhaps the keeper could have been quicker to close down Doherty in Wolves’ first goal, but beyond that, he had little chance to stop the goals today.
Hugo Lloris had only recently returned from a long-term injury that had kept him out between October 2019 and January 2020, but he was sidelined today again.
Spurs officially announced that the skipper missed out due to a groin injury, with Michel Vorm them being promoted to the bench.
Asked when Lloris would be back, Mourinho admitted that he did not know an exact date but did not expect it to be a big problem for the Frenchman.
He said (Football London): “I don’t know. It’s hard to say when he’s going to be back. Is it a big problem? I don’t think it is, but ready to play today and have to wait.”
