Hugo Lloris had to be stretched off in considerable pain as he suffered a serious injury to his left arm after gifting Brighton the lead in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
The Frenchman dropped what appeared a routine catch from a cross from the left, allowing Neal Maupay to nod into the empty net from right underneath the crossbar to give the hosts the lead in the game.
Lloris then fell to the ground and was clearly in significant discomfort, with the Spurs goalkeeper receiving oxygen and eventually being stretchered off, to be replaced by Paulo Gazzaniga after a lengthy delay.
BT Sport reported that Lloris was screaming as he left the field on a stretcher and that, after being given morphine, he was rushed straight to hospital for further treatment.
It remains unclear exactly what the injury is, although it would appear the France international has suffered major damage, potentially a break, to his arm after he fell and landed awkwardly following the dropped catch.
The incident and subsequent goal happened inside the first three minutes of the first half and was the fastest Brighton have found the net in their Premier League history.
