Much like in their match against Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur are expected to field a rotated side in their final Premier League match of the season against Hull City this Sunday. One of their rotated players is likely to be Hugo Lloris; Spurs announced on social media that their starting keeper is doubtful after picking up a knee injury somewhere along the line between Thursday and today.

There’s still some question as to whether Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker will be ready to face the Hull City Tigers, so if both of them aren’t ready to go expect some additional happy fun time three-at-the-back formation magic from Pochettino on Sunday. That worked out pretty well the last time!
While Michel Vorm is almost certainly going to start on Sunday, I can’t help but wish that Poch would hand the gloves to on-loan keeper Pau Lopez. He’s been here an entire season on loan and has yet to crack the first team for any minutes, though he has made the bench a couple of times when Hugo was out injured. I have no idea if he’s any good or ready for the Premier League, but it’s already-relegated Hull, and it’s the last game of the season, and I’d like nothing better than to see something wacky.
Hull’s pretty beat up themselves, with Spurs target Harry Maguire, Abel Hernandez, Lazar Markovich, David Meyler, Will Keane, and (of course) Ryan Mason all out for Sunday’s match, but there’s still a good chance we’ll see former Spurs players Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone.
