Tottenham Hotspur could be without their goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris for up to eight weeks after he was injured in Sunday's Premier League win over Manchester City.

According to media reports on Wednesday, the 36-year-old Frenchman injured his knee ligaments and while he does not require surgery, he faces a lengthy lay-off.

Fraser Forster is Lloris's back-up and looks set to have an extended run in the side having made only one Premier League appearance since joining on a free transfer.

Lloris's injury would be a blow to Tottenham who are fifth in the Premier League, face a last-16 Champions League tie against AC Milan and are also in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
