Report: Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris could start against Fiorentina

Hugo Lloris was expected to miss out on playing in Tottenham Hotspur's match against Fiorentina tomorrow.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris could return ahead of schedule and play against Fiorentina in the Europa League tomorrow night, according to a report in the London Evening Standard.

Lloris picked up an injury against Manchester City in Spurs’ most recent Premier League outing, and the French international was not expected to return to Mauricio Pochettino’s side until their match against Swansea City at the weekend.

However, Lloris has made a rapid recovery, and he returned to Spurs training earlier today.

The 29-year-old took part in a full session of Tottenham training this morning, and he is set to undergo tests afterwards which will determine whether he is fit enough to play in the Europa League.

Lloris’ return will be a major boost for Spurs, as Michel Vorm has not impressed during his absence.

Vorm was at fault for the goal Tottenham conceded against Crystal Palace last weekend, as they crashed out of the FA Cup.

If Lloris does return to the Lilywhites’ line-up against Fiorentina, he will be looking to keep a clean-sheet, which will guarantee that his side progresses in the competition.

Tottenham drew 1-1 with the Serie A side last week, meaning they are in a strong position ahead of the second leg at White Hart Lane.
