After recovering from a knee injury and returning to full training, Hugo Lloris may make his first appearance in almost two months when Tottenham visit Everton on Monday.
Lloris, the captain of Spurs, suffered the injury on February 5 during a 1-0 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City, which resulted in him being absent from the team’s last nine matches.
Lloris will play after almost two months
Throughout that period, Fraser Forster has filled in for Lloris as Tottenham exited the Champions League and the FA Cup and parted ways with manager Antonio Conte following a 3-3 draw at Southampton before the international break.
Interim head coach Cristian Stellini is pleased with the return of Lloris. Although he will have to deal with injuries to full-back Emerson Royal, as well as Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ben Davies, and Richarlison.
“Hugo is training,” head coach said. “It’s a week where he has trained with the team.
“We had a training match where we could let Hugo feel the pitch again. We will recover Hugo, but we have problems with other players.
“This is football. We have injured players, but we also believe in all the players.
“We have a big squad; we also have young players ready, and we trust in them, like we trusted Pape Sarr and Oliver Skipp when they started to play. Young players are involved in our squad. if we need them, they are ready to play.”
