Hugo Lloris has delivered a boost for Spurs fans and revealed he hopes to be back in action in time for Tottenham’s away fixture against Stoke on September 10.
Lloris, 29, was brought off after 35 minutes during his side’s opening Premier League game against Everton on August 13.
The France goalkeeper pulled up with a hamstring problem, but the shot-stopper has now revealed how his recovery has been going and when he hopes to return.
“I feel very good thank you,” said Lloris as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account. “I need to go step-by-step but my feeling is great.
“We’re working properly since day one with the physios, doctor, fitness coach and it’s always important to feel the support of the medical staff.
“I’m working hard to get back fit and it’s like a new pre-season for me but it’s good. This week is important because unfortunately I can’t go to the national team so it gives me one more week to prepare myself to be fit hopefully for next week.”
The star-man played in 46 encounters for Spurs last season in all competitions conceding just 45 goals.
Michel Vorm has been deputising in goal this season during Lloris’ absence.
Vorm has kept one clean sheet, with the Dutchman helping his side to their only win so far this season against Crystal Palace.
Lloris and Vorm will be now challenged for the goal-keeping spot, with Spaniard Pau Lopez signing on deadline on a season-long loan from Espanyol.
