Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is set to miss the rest of 2019 with a dislocated elbow but does not need surgery, the club said. Lloris, injured during Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Brighton, is not expected to train again until next year.
He fell awkwardly as he failed to hold a third-minute Pascal Gross cross, with Neal Maupay nodding in the loose ball. “Although surgery will not be required, our club captain has suffered ligament damage,” Spurs said in a statement. “He is not expected to return to training before the end of 2019.
“Hugo is currently in a brace and will now undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation.”
