Hugo Lloris could miss the vital derby versus Arenal with injury

He has been replaced in the France squad by Alban Lafont from Nantes.

Lloris is set to miss out on Nations League ties versus Austria and Denmark.

Mike Maignan of AC Milan may get the nod in goal for Les Blues.

The injury leaves Spurs concerned their keeper could not be fit for the huge clash versus rivals Arsenal after the international break.

Fraser Forster would have to step up and make his first appearance since joining the club over the summer.

Lloris has been a key man for Tottenham for a number of years and has been the club’s No.1 for eleven seasons.

He is the most experienced player in the side playing 425 times for the club.

And he has played in 21 games versus the Gunners winning seven matches.

The 35-year-old has already kept three clean sheets this season in all competitions and Antonio Conte’s side are yet to lose in the Premier League this season.

The North London derby is always a massive but this one taking place on October 1 at the Emirates Stadium is set to special as a win could take either side top of the table.

Spurs are third in the league on 17 points meanwhile Arsenal are top on 18 points.
