Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris suffered a dislocated elbow during their Premier League defeat to Brighton.
The Spurs captain suffered the injury as he landed after dropping the ball on the goal line after only three minutes – a mistake that gave Brighton their first goal in a 3-0 win.
A club statement said: “We can confirm that Hugo Lloris sustained a dislocated elbow during today’s match against Brighton.
“Our club captain was stretchered off as a result of the injury and will now return to London this evening after being assessed at a local hospital.
“Assessment will continue this coming week to ascertain the full extent of the injury and the length of time he will require to undergo rehabilitation.”
