Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris in battle to be fit for derby against Arsenal

first_imgShare on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Hugo Lloris is a doubt for the derby against Arsenal at Wembley on 18 November because of an adductor muscle injury he sustained in Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-1 Champions League win against Real Madrid on Wednesday.The club’s goalkeeper and captain said he felt the problem after a coming-together after leaving his line, although he was able to carry on and finish. He has been withdrawn from the France squad for the friendlies against Wales and Germany.Didier Deschamps, the France manager, said Lloris would be out for a minimum of two weeks, which means he will certainly miss Spurs’ Premier League game against Crystal Palace at Wembley on Sunday. Michel Vorm will deputise.Spurs are also waiting for a more precise timeframe on Toby Alderweireld, who was forced off against Real with a hamstring injury. The defender said he would be out for a few weeks.
