Tottenham's Lloris out until 2020 with damaged ligaments - France boss Deschamps

Alexis Nunes and Julien Laurens discuss Tottenham Hotspur's recent poor form and ask whether Mauricio Pochettino should have walked away at the end of last season.

The ESPN FC crew breaks down whether Mauricio Pochettino and Ole Gunnar Skolskjaer's futures are intertwined.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is unlikely to play again this year after scans showed he suffered damaged ligaments in his left elbow during the 3-0 defeat to Brighton in the Premier League, the club said on Monday.

Lloris suffered a dislocated elbow as he landed awkwardly when attempting to save a Pascal Gross shot and the ball fell to Brighton's Neal Maupay to tap into an unguarded net for the opening goal.

The club said the 32-year-old is in a brace and will undergo a period of rest and rehabilitation under the supervision of team medical staff.

Lloris travelled to Paris on Monday to undergo an MRI scan on the elbow, which revealed no fracture but ligament damage. He also met with France head coach Didier Deschamps at Les Bleus' training centre at Clairefontaine.

"I spoke to him [Hugo]," Deschamps said in a news conference. "He is on the mend.

"He had more exams this morning [Monday]. It is difficult today to say how long exactly he will be unavailable for. The possibility of a fracture has been ruled out, but the ligaments have been damaged.

"I am not a doctor, but I know that he will not be with us during this international break or the next one in November for sure. He will start a protocol now for his rehabilitation.

"But he will be out for a few weeks and a few months. He won't play again in 2019, that is almost a certitude."

France play at Iceland on Friday (watch on ESPN2) in a Euro 2020 qualifying match before hosting Turkey on Oct. 14 (stream on ESPN+)

Scans taken on Saturday showed there was no fracture, but Lloris was waiting on this MRI to understand more more on how long he would be out for.

Marseille's Steve Mandanda will deputise for Lloris at international level, while Paulo Gazzaniga is Tottenham's No.1 goalkeeper in his ongoing absence for Spurs.
