Tottenham’s Lloris injured making howler that gives Brighton lead

Pochettino I hope to stay at Tottenham for five years more

- ESPN Premier League fantasy: Sign up now!

The Old Trafford outfit was unable to acquire the services of the Denmark worldwide after a late bid was tabled in the last summer transfer window, but the club believes they have a better chance of signing the midfielder in the coming window.

In obvious pain, Lloris was treated for six minutes by medical staff before being taken from the pitch on a stretcher while being given oxygen.

Brighton were excellent value for their 3-0 win - matched at a high of [130.0] - having registered now fewer than 17 shots at Tottenham's goal in a display which saw them win a huge percentage of 50/50 challenges and basically dominate from the off. Led by striker and England captain Harry Kane, Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen and goalkeeper/team captain Hugo Lloris, there appeared to be plenty of talent in key positions for Spurs to make them a formidable opponent on any given day.

"Our club captain was stretchered off as a result of the injury and will now return to London this evening after being assessed at a local hospital".

Tottenham said in a statement: "Assessment will continue this coming week to ascertain the full extent of the injury and the length of time he will require to undergo rehabilitation". It had a massive impact on the game.

That was the first team Spurs had conceded seven goals in a home match in any senior competition in their 137-year history.

Spurs go into the hiatus on the back of a week to forget as they followed up the Champions League humiliation against Bayern Munich with an equally desperate 3-0 defeat to Brighton on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur's Erik Lamela vies for the ball with Brighton's Steven Alzate during their Premier League match on Saturday at Falmer Stadium.

However, Pochettino has dismissed suggestions that he could walk away from the club and said he could stay for another five more years at Tottenham. I have to say thank you for the fans.

Just before managers are dismissed by clubs, or they choose to walk away, there is always a moment when the players look passive to the point of helplessness; they are off the pace and their opponents play around and through them too easily. No doubt we stay all together and we find a way to be successful again. There is a feeling that this is not good at the minute.
