Tottenham Hotspur were beaten in the final moments of their Champions League match with Inter Milan on Tuesday.
Spurs had initially managed to take the lead through Christian Eriksen, however, two late goals from the Italian outfit meant Mauricio Pochettino’s side would be returning to England without the points.
Hugo Lloris has missed the last few matches with a thigh injury, with it thought to be significant enough to keep him out of action for several weeks.
However, according to Ben Dinnery, the goalkeeper could be back in the first-team within two weeks, meaning he could be back in time for their home encounter with Barcelona at the beginning of October.
Suggestion that Lloris could be available in around 10-14 days. https://t.co/cckOHhGs0b

The freelance injury data analyst was answering a question put forward to him by a fan and stated that suggestions would be that the World Cup winner would be out for a further 10-14 days.
Should Lloris be able to make a return to the side just in time for their match with Barcelona, it will come as a huge boost to Tottenham.
The shot-stopper has become a key player for Pochettino and Spurs over the years and his absence has certainly been missed recently.
The recovery time from an injury is always hard to predict as it depends on the player themselves, however, Spurs will be hoping Dinnery is right when it comes to Lloris.
