Tottenham Hotspur’s season didn’t get off to a great start. After one half of football at Goodison Park against Everton, Spurs were down 1-0 on a derpy Ross Barkley free kick. But it gets worse: Tottenham’s captain and starting keeper Hugo Lloris was substituted off in the 36’ for Michel Vorm.
The club tweeted at halftime that Hugo had picked up a hamstring injury, which is ALL KINDS OF NOT GOOD.
Hugo update: Our goalkeeper and captain came off with a hamstring injury. We'll speak to Mauricio after the game for an update.— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) August 13, 2016
There isn’t any indication yet on the severity of the injury or how long (if at all) Hugo will be out. We don’t know how the injury happened or when; maybe it was when Hugo collided with the post when Ross Barkley scored, or maybe something happened on a clearance.
But for now, Vorm is in goal and will need to help marshall Spurs’ defense for the rest of the match.
Pray for Spurs’ defense. Pray for Hugo. Pray pray pray.
