Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been ruled out for four weeks with a hamstring injury, the club have confirmed.

The Spurs skipper was replaced by Michel Vorm just 35 minutes into the club's opening game of the Premier League season against Everton on Saturday (13 August).

"Following further assessment and scans of the left hamstring injury sustained by Hugo Lloris in the 1-1 draw at Everton on Saturday, we can confirm he is expected to be out of action for around four weeks," a statement from the club read.

"Our captain left the field during the first-half at Goodison Park and our medical team will continue to monitor his progress during his rehabilitation to determine when he will be ready to return to training."

The injury immediately rules Lloris out of Premier League games against Crystal Palace (20 August), Liverpool (27 August), Stoke City (10 September) and possibly Sunderland (18 September). The France international will also miss the club's first game back in the Champions League, which is scheduled to take place on 13 or 14 of September.

Erik Lamela rescued a point against Everton following Ross Barkley's opener but speaking post-match, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted the loss of their captain had a telling effect on the rest of the team.

"The first-half was difficult for us and we did not play well. Hugo Lloris got injured and that was a big impact on us. In the second-half we played as we usually play," Pochettino explained, Sky Sports report. "They scored early and they believed they could win the game. They were very motivated."
