The Evening Standard have claimed that Hugo Lloris might have already played his final game for Tottenham Hotspur since he might not feature again this season due to an injury.
Lloris went off with a thigh injury at half-time during Tottenham’s 6-1 loss at St James’ Park, a game in which the Frenchman conceded five goals in the first 21 minutes.
The Spurs captain has missed the next two matches, with Fraser Forster deputising between the sticks during the 2-2 draw against Manchester United and the 4-3 loss against Liverpool.
The Evening Standard have claimed that Lloris is now ‘definitely out’ of Saturday’s clash against Crystal Palace and is considered a ‘major doubt’ to play again this season, with the Lilywhites having just three games left following the clash against the Eagles.
It is explained that Tottenham are expected to be in the market for a new number-one goalkeeper this summer. The Frenchman, who enters the final year of his contract this June, could be prompted to seek a new challenge away from N17.

If the Newcastle game does prove to be Lloris’ final one in a Spurs shirt, it would be quite a sad ending to his time at the club.
The 36-year-old has been an excellent servant to the club over the years and deserved a nice farewell from the fans.
