Tottenham News: Captain Hugo Lloris could miss Arsenal derby after thigh injury in latest Spurs win

According to Metro, Hugo Lloris is a doubt for Tottenham Hotspur’s North London derby against Arsenal on October 1 after picking up a thigh injury in the 6-2 win against Leicester City.

He has withdrawn from France’s squad, who are scheduled to play against Austria on September 22 and Denmark three days later, both in the UEFA Nations League. This injury comes at a poor time for Lloris.

Mike Maignan is coming on the back of a superb season at AC Milan where he helped them win the Serie A title. Lloris, who started in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final against Croatia, would want to be a starter in Didier Deschamps’ team once again.

The 35-year-old was at his scintillating best against the Foxes as he saved well to deny Patson Daka with the scores still at 3-2. He also saved Youri Tielemans’ initial penalty but could do nothing about the one that was retaken by the Belgium international after Lloris’ encroachment of his line during the first save.

Forster to the rescue?

Nevertheless, Lloris was in no visible discomfort and completed the full 90 minutes against Brendan Rodgers’ side. Hopefully, the injury is nothing serious and he is back in time for the game against the Gunners.

If he somehow doesn’t, then this is one of the occasions we would have signed Fraser Forster on a free transfer from Southampton this summer. The 34-year-old, like Lloris, is agile between the sticks and is a dependable stopper despite his age.

Forster, however, is yet to play a single minute this season for us. It would always be a daunting task for a fiery derby to be your competitive debut for the club.
