Football.London have described Hugo Lloris’ thigh problem as a ‘small injury’ after it emerged that the goalkeeper had pulled out of the France squad.
As always, Lloris has been outstanding between the sticks for Spurs so far this season, and has been an unsung hero in the North London club’s excellent defensive record.
The Tottenham captain has been particularly impressive in the last two clashes against Sporting Lisbon and Leicester, with Eric Dier even taking to social media after the defeat in the Champions League last week to remark that the goalkeeper did not deserve to be on the losing side.
Les Blues confirmed this morning that Lloris had left the squad for their upcoming Nations League clashes due to an injury in his right thigh.
Football.London have now revealed that the 35-year-old’s injury was diagnosed by Les Blues’ team doctor at their training base at Clairefontaine today.
The report states that Lloris was found to have ‘a small injury to his right thigh’ and that France decided to send him back to Spurs so he can get back to full fitness as soon as possible.
Football.London state that, as things stand, it is not clear whether Lloris will be fit to take to the field in time for the North London derby.

It will certainly be a blow if Lloris is not fit for the clash against Arsenal. However, in Fraser Forster, we have a quality backup, who has more than enough experience to cope with the demands of a high-pressure game like the one at the Emirates in two weeks.
