• Erik Lamela rescued a draw for Spurs after Ross Barkley opener.
  • Lloris to undergo scan after being forced off after 35 minutes.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed goalkeeper Hugo Lloris suffered a hamstring injury in his side's Premier League season opening draw with Everton.

A goal from Erik Lamela helped Spurs rescue a point at Goodison Park following Ross Barkley's opener but there was greater concern for France international Lloris, who was forced off after just 35 minutes and replaced by Michel Vorm.

Speaking after the match, Pochettino admitted the loss of the club captain had a telling effect on the rest of the players, with the club now awaiting the results of a scan to learn the extent of the injury.

"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 plated as we usually play," Pochettino said post-match, Sky Sports report. "They scored early and they believed they could win the game. They were very motivated.

"Lloris has a hamstring injury and we need to assess tomorrow to see what happens."

Victor Wanyama, a summer signing from Southampton, started in midfield in place of the suspended Mousa Dembele with Vincent Janssen also coming off the bench to make his Premier League debut in the second half.

Unlike their rivals, Tottenham have spent modestly this summer but Pochettino is still hoping to add possibly two more players before the transfer window closes.

"I have spoken that we may get one or two. We are very open, it is not easy to bring in players who can help us but we are trying."

The England trio of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier all had quiet afternoons on Merseyside with Barkley's effort putting the home side ahead after just five minutes in Ronald Koeman's first game in charge. The north London side improved in the second half, however, with Lamela popping up to nod home Kyle Walker's cross to level the contest.
