Tottenham have confirmed goalkeeper Hugo Lloris dislocated his elbow during Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion after he was assessed at a nearby hospital.
The France international fell awkwardly after Neal Maupay headed Brighton into the lead three minutes into the match at Amex Stadium and had to be taken off on a stretcher.
Lloris was replaced by Paulo Gazzaniga, who conceded twice more as Aaron Connolly’s brace ensured a comfortable win for Brighton.
A statement on Tottenham’s official website said: “We can confirm that Hugo Lloris sustained a dislocated elbow during Saturday’s match against Brighton.
