Hugo Lloris dislocates elbow in Tottenham defeat at Brighton

Mauricio Pochettino comments on Tottenham future, fans react

The Tottenham skipper suffered a horrific injury to his left arm landing awkwardly after dropping a cross in just the third minute, allowing Neal Maupay to open the scoring.

Charlie Nicholas is backing Brighton and Hove Albion to hold Tottenham Hotspur to a 1-1 draw in the Premier League clash on the South Coast on Saturday lunchtime.

Disaster struck for Spurs after just three minutes when a Hugo Lloris howler allowed Neil Maupay to tap home from close range, and things would get even worse for the North London outfit, with the French goalkeeper also suffering a nasty looking elbow injury that resulted in the World Cup victor having to be stretchered off.

"Assessment will continue in the coming week to ascertain the full extent of the injury and the length of time he will require to undergo rehabilitation".

"We're in a very hard moment but we need to keep going", he added.

Pochettino said Spurs will go into the worldwide break in a state of mild shock after two crushing losses, defeat here following the shellacking against Bayern Munich in midweek.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Nicholas said: "What do we say about Tottenham?".

After that game, Connolly said: "It is every young kids dream making their Premier League debut and it's the same with me I've always wanted to do it since I was young and thankfully today it happened".

Lloris jumped up to catch the ball on the line as Brighton launched an attack on goal.

Teenage Irishman Aaron Connolly did the further damage, reacting quickly after Gazzaniga failed to hold his first effort to put his side 2-0 up inside half an hour. "He gives us an extra dimension and he took his goals really well". We started the second half well but we didn't score.

Along with Blackburn Rovers defender Derrick Williams, Connolly has been added to the squad for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Georgia and Switzerland.

"At 3-0 everyone saw the game was over and there is nothing to do after". "I want to say thanks to the fans, I felt sorry for them".

Speaking after the Bayern Munich defeat, Lloris said: "We need to find a solution to find the consistency that was our strength in the last few years".
