Hugo Lloris doubtful for Aston Villa match

No Sherwood #banter for Hugo!

Well, this is suboptimal. Tottenham Hotspur's starting goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has reportedly not trained all week, did not participate in an open training session today at White Hart Lane, and is now doubtful for Saturday's Premier League match with Aston Villa.

Lloris suffered a gash to his leg after colliding with right back Kyle Walker in Spurs' narrow victory over Leicester City last month. It was thought that he could be back in time to take on former manager Tim Sherwood and Villa this weekend, but the club may opt to rest him another week and have him back in time for Spurs' trip to Newcastle on April 19. Michel Vorm is Hugo's natural replacement and will start if Hugo does not.

In addition, right back Kyle Walker is also a doubt after injuring his foot last weekend against Burnley. It is thought that he could be replaced by Vlad Chiriches for Saturday's match if he is not ready to go.

No official news yet on Jan Vertonghen, who also missed the Burnley match with "an illness," but it is likely that he will be in the frame.
