Hugo Lloris injury update provided after suffering horrendous arm problem at Brighton | Football | Sport


Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was stretchered off while being given gas and air after suffering a horror arm injury against Brighton.

The France captain gifted the Seagulls the lead with a horrendous error under his own bar.

But as he fell back into the net he put his arm down behind him which then gave way in scenes not for the fain-hearted.

And after he had been stretchered off BT Sport pitch side reporter Des Kelly provided an update on Lloris.

He said the 32-year-old was screaming as he was stretchered off of the Amex pitch.

Lloris was also given extra morphine to ease the pain and taken to A&E at the nearest hospital.

To make matters worst, Brighton doubled their lead and went in at half-time 2-0 up.

Meanwhile Lloris was slammed by Tony Cottee for the error leading to Neal Maupay’s opener.

“We saw Lloris make a mistake last week. He’s made another absolute howler.

“It’s the most simple of catches. If it was a Sunday league team you’d be moaning about it. It’s dreadful from Lloris.”

At half-time BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey also confirmed that Lloris had been taken to hospital.

After seeing the injury, David De Gea and Peter Schmeichel both took to Twitter to wish the France star well.

De Gea simply posted: “Lloris,” followed by praying hands.

Schmeichel said: “Get well soon Hugo.”

Tottenham have it all to do in the second half with Brighton leading 2-0.

Maurciio Pochettino is under pressure at Spurs after losing 7-2 to Bayern Munich earlier this week in the Champions League.
