His team-mates quickly checked to see how he was, before calling their side’s medic team onto the pitch with Lloris unable to move.
He was given laughing gas so it would dull the pain, before he was then stretchered and play was halted for around six minutes.
Hugo Lloris has undergone further assessment this morning after sustaining a dislocated elbow in our match against Brighton on Saturday.
The findings have shown that although surgery will not be required, our Club Captain has suffered ligament damage and is not expected to return to training before the end of 2019.
Hugo is currently in a brace and will now undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation under the supervision of our medical staff at Hotspur Way.
