Injury Rules Hugo Lloris Out For Six Weeks

Tottenham goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris has been ruled out for between six and eight weeks with a knee injury.

The former France skipper, 36, sustained ligament damage in Spurs' 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

Spurs have former Southampton and England international Fraser Forster as a backup.

Academy players Brandon Austin and Alfie Whiteman are other options, but neither has much senior experience.

Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League and fighting for a Champions League spot for next season.

They play Leicester City in the league on Saturday before travelling to AC Milan for their first-leg round-of-16 tie in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Forster, who joined on a free transfer last summer, has made just one Premier League appearance for Spurs - a 2-2 Boxing Day draw with Brentford.

Lloris, who captained France to a World Cup victory in 2018, announced his retirement from international football last month.

He has kept seven clean sheets from 21 league games this season.
