Hugo Lloris is a doubt for the North London derby, with Joe Hart preparing to potentially make a start against Arsenal on Sunday.
The Telegraph report that Hugo Lloris is a doubt for Spurs on Sunday, having not travelled with the squad to face LASK on Thursday. The club won’t confirm whether he’s injured, but there is concern he could miss the game.
If you’re keeping track of your bets with Bet Bind, you may have noticed that you’re getting much longer odds on Arsenal Premier League victories at the moment. But Lloris’ absence could give the Gunners a boost this weekend.
Hart put in a poor performance against LASK on Thursday. One error directly led to a goal, and he was arguably at fault for another in their 3-3 draw. His pass accuracy of 46% didn’t help matters.
Arsenal have been struggling to score goals in the Premier League lately, with just two in their last six games, but they’d fancy their chances a bit more with Hart in goal.
Whether Spurs are keeping quiet on Lloris because they don’t want Arsenal to know he’s injured, or whether they’re just playing mind games with the media, we’ll find out in a few days.
