Son Heung-min’s team, Tottenham Hotspur, was in an emergency. Team captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is unavoidable for a long time due to a knee injury.
The British BBC reported on the 8th (Korean time) that Lloris would be out of action for at least six weeks after injuring knee ligaments in the 2022-23 English Premier League (EPL) match against Manchester City.
The absence of Lloris, who kept the goal in 21 of 22 EPL games this season, is a factor that can increase goal anxiety. Of course, there is Fraser Foster, who played an active role in Southampton, but it is not comparable to the experienced Lloris. Foster, who was recruited by Tottenham through the transfer market last summer, played in the EPL match against Brentford on Boxing Day, but conceded two goals. At the time, Tottenham drew 2-2.
Backups are also insecure. Players currently being nurtured in the academy, such as Brandon Austin and Alfie Whiteman, are also considered options, but they have little experience in regular games.
The situation in which Lloris cannot keep the goal for six weeks is bad news for Tottenham ahead of a tight schedule. Tottenham, ahead of the EPL away game against Leicester City on the 12th, will play AC Milan and San Siro in Milan, Italy on the 15th in the first leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. 안전놀이터
Then, on the 20th and 26th, we will play two EPL home matches against West Ham United and Chelsea, and on the 2nd of next month, we will have a 2022-2023 FA Cup match against Sheffield United. Next month, in addition to EPL matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Nottingham Forest and Southampton, there will also be a home match against AC Milan in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.
