Tottenham confirm Hugo Lloris injury latest as Champions League run-in awaits
Ottenham have received a key boost in a difficult week for the club.
Spurs return to the Premier League at Everton on Monday night, more than a week after finally confirming Antonio Conte’s departure.
Cristian Stellini has been appointed as the club’s caretaker manager for the final ten games of the season as Spurs battle to retain their place in the Premier League’s top four.
The club remains unclear whether director of football Fabio Paratici will be allowed to continue in his role until an appeal against his 30-month ban is heard next month.
On the pitch, Spurs lead fifth-placed Newcastle by two points, but Eddie Howe’s side are two games behind.
They entered the international break after a disappointing 3-3 draw with bottom Southampton despite holding a two-goal lead with less than 20 minutes to go on the south coast.
There is good news, however, as the club have confirmed that Hugo Lloris has returned to training.
The goalkeeper suffered a knee injury in the win over Manchester City in February but has now joined his teammates at Hotspur Way.
Although it’s unclear whether or not the World Cup winner will be involved at Goodison Park, Lloris’ return is a welcome sight for Spurs.
After Monday’s game on Merseyside, they face four main rivals Newcastle, Brighton, Manchester United and Liverpool in a busy schedule in April.
