Hugo Lloris could be fit in time for Tim Sherwood's return to White Hart Lane

Hugo Lloris went down with an injury but may be back in time to captain the side against Spurs' former manager.

Hugo Lloris was substituted off with what was described as "a gash" after a collision with an out-of-control (and fairly derpy) Kyle Walker in Tottenham's 4-3 win over Leicester City last Saturday. The club hasn't said anything official, but Tom Collomosse at the Standard has pointed to the April 11 match against Aston Villa as a target for his return.

Spurs are off this weekend, and then travel to Turf Moor to take on relegation candidates Burnley on April 5. He's already withdrawn from the two France friendlies this week, and it looks doubtful that he'll be ready for Burnley.

Frankly, I'm okay with playing at Burnley with Michel Vorm, but in a match as fraught with #narrative as Tim Sherwood's return to White Hart Lane, I'd kind of like to have our team captain and best goalkeeper between the sticks for that one. After all, this is Tottenham and Tim Sherwood and it means that Villa's going to play out of their heads because reasons.
