Hugo Lloris out for a month
Having played for France in their Euro 2016 final defeat to Portugal, Tottenham number one Hugo Lloris came off injured in their Premier League opener against Everton.
The 29-year-old managed only 35 minutes in the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park and the club today confirmed Lloris would be sidelined for four weeks.
Spurs back-up keeper Michel Vorm will be given his chance to shine between the sticks, having started only four league games in the last two years.
Spurs fans not happy
Hugo Lloris will miss some key games for Tottenham and their fans on social media were far from pleased.
Needing a month to recover from his hamstring problem, the highly-rated French stopper will miss Premier League games against Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Stoke City.
Check out some tweets from depressed Spurs fans below.
Following further assessment of the hamstring injury sustained by Hugo, we can confirm he's expected to be out of action for around 4 weeks.

#thfc Hugo Lloris has been ruled out for about a month. Bad news as Vorm hasn't always looked confident as a deputy. Big period for him now.

Vorm has got ability but not playing week in week out for 4 years have severely harmed him. We need that back four to be even better now
