After getting humiliated at home against Bayern Munich in the second round of the Champions League (2–7), Tottenham has suffered another convincing defeat, this time in the English Premier League.

However, the 3–0 loss at Brighton was not the only bad news for the struggling Spurs. Namely, their superstar goalkeeper and team captain, Hugo Lloris, went down with an injury after the first Brighton goal in the third minute of the match. Lloris was immediately substituted and went to the locker room, after which he was transferred to the hospital.

The news from this morning suggests that the Frenchman’s injury is much worse than anticipated. The awkward fall made Lloris dislocate his elbow, which will sideline him at least until the end of 2019. The doctors confirmed that there was some ligament damage and that the French goalkeeper won’t be returning to practice any time soon.

Tottenham is in a string of bad results in the last couple of weeks. They are currently ninth in the Premier League, while they only won one point in their first couple of Champions League matches. The Spurs also suffered an embarrassing loss to League 2 Colchester in the Carabao Cup.

The fans are getting impatient, and there are some rumors that the team’s manager Mauricio Pochettino will get replaced very soon. Some even say that Pochettino is the prime candidate to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the manager of Manchester United, another struggling team that’s in desperate need of change.

Hi, I’m Stefan, and I live for sports. No… I’m serious, I literally live for sports. I grew up within a family unit where my mom was an avid tennis player, my father played football, and my uncles and aunts (all who visited us fairly regularly) played basketball and table tennis at a competitive level. So when we weren’t playing sports, we were watching it. And when we weren’t watching sports, we were listening to it on the radio in the car. So sports have always been a part of the fabric of not only my childhood, but also my adult life too. Personally, I can play most sports. But my favorite is tennis. Here at The Sporty, I’ll be using my all-rounder sports skills to bring you the latest and greatest from the world of sports. But I will also do my best to cover as much tennis related news as I can. So that’s me in a nutshell - game, set and match.
