While a dislocated elbow is still a serious issue that will keep Lloris out for a period, the blow could have been significantly worse.

Speaking to talkSPORT earlier in the day, manager Mauricio Pochettino feared things would be more serious and said: “The news after [the] game wasn’t good.

“Of course, it’s not good news. I think he has suffered a big issue.”

Paulo Gazzaniga is Spurs’ second choice and he replaced Lloris on Saturday.
