Tottenham Hotspur fans would certainly have been disappointed with the news on Tuesday that goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris is set for four weeks on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, and many took to Twitter to express their opinions on the blow to the 29-year-old.

The Frenchman is a key figure at White Hart Lane and played a vital part in his side's assault on the Premier League title last season. Lloris missed the first match against Manchester United last season, but then played every league match and all but one of the Europa League matches.

With Michel Vorm set to come in, having featured mainly in the domestic cups last season, there is a big onus for the Dutchman to demonstrate his worth as an international class back up.

If Lloris spends a full four weeks out injured, as the information provided by Tottenham indicated, he will miss the next three league matches and narrowly miss the club's opening Champions League fixture.

He will join another important first teamer on the sidelines domestically, with Mousa Dembele still absent for the next three league games.

Below are some tweets from Spurs fans after hearing the news about their skipper:
