Report: Hugo Lloris fitness update - Is it good or bad news?

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris should be fit for the side's game against Aston Villa in early April, according to a report released today.

According to the London Evening Standard, Hugo Lloris will return to action for Tottenham Hotspur in the near future.

Lloris was forced off due to injury in the early stages of Tottenham's match against Leicester City over the weekend and there were concerns that the Frenchman was set for a lengthy lay-off.

However, it appears that the injury is not as bad as first feared and Spurs are apparently 'confident' that he will be fit for their game against Aston Villa on April 11th.

That would mean that Lloris would only miss one of Spurs' upcoming fixtures, a Premier League match against Burnley, and it would be a major boost for the squad.

Lloris has been one of Tottenham's key performers this campaign and he is vital to the Lilywhites chances of claiming a top-four spot.

Mauricio Pochetitno's men probably need to win all of their remaining fixtures if they are to make it into the Champions League qualification places and doing so without Lloris would be difficult.

Although Spurs have Michel Vorm in reserve, he does not exude the confidence that Tottenham's number one does and Lloris’ return, therefore, cannot come soon enough for the north London club.
