Crisis club Tottenham ’s season from Hell went from bad to worse when skipper Hugo Lloris was ruled out for the rest of the year.

The Spurs No 1 dislocated his elbow in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Brighton and the club released an updated on Monday evening.

A club statement read: “Although surgery will not be required, our Club Captain has suffered ligament damage and is not expected to return to training before the end of 2019.”

Pochettino is scheduled for talks with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy when he returns from giving a speech at the Aspire Academy in Qatar later this week.
