Brighton: Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris took a awkward fall and looked to have seriously injured himself as he had to be stretchered from the field during Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.
Lloris made a howler as he tried to collect a simple cross into the box. He dropped the ball before falling backwards and Brighton's Neal Maupay headed it in from point blank range to give his team a dream start after just three minutes.
However as Lloris fell to the ground, he seemed to have broken his elbow and was even given oxygen as he was carried from the field. He will now be a major doubt for upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Iceland and Turkey.
