The Tottenham injury news ahead of the crucial Premier League game against south London side Crystal Palace.

Tottenham's interim manager Ryan Mason has confirmed with a hint of frustration that captain Hugo Lloris will not play again this season after his injury at Newcastle a few weeks ago.

This is the second time Hugo has picked up a huge injury this year after he missed six weeks due to a knee problem picked up in the 1-0 win over Manchester City.

It has been a tough campaign for the Spurs number one who endured World Cup heartbreak in Qatar before seeing a campaign that promised a lot blow up in his face with the team dropping out of a Champions League spot and losing manager Antonio Conte.

Hugo’s individual performance has come under scrutiny with a section of the Tottenham fanbase reluctantly accepting that it might be time for their loyal servant for almost a decade to give way to someone younger.

Caretaker boss Ryan Mason who played with Lloris before seeing his career cruelly cut short due to a skull fracture confirmed the former France international had played his last game this campaign but was hoping to have midfielder Yves Bissouma back at some point.

He told reporters: “Hugo is out for the season. We had the results back. Obviously disappointing. We feared that initially and now we’ve had the results.

“ [With Rodrigo Bentancur] Obviously, you can have setbacks with these kind of things. We’re assessing him day by day. It’s probably too early to set a return date.

“We’re hopeful [Bissouma can play a part before the end of the season]. There are some hurdles he’s got to overcome.

“Ryan [Sessegnon] had a significant injury and he won’t feature for the rest of the season. Emerson is day by day now and hopefully, he can help us before the end of the season.”

Tottenham have won only one of their last seven games and face an in-form Crystal Palace side at home on Coronation day.
