Tottenham Hotspur Is Going to Face Arsenal With a Huge Risk

Antonio Conte is going to take a risk, as the Tottenham Hotspur coach is giving Fraser Forster his first debut in the North London Derby.

Transfer Insider Dean Jones has confirmed the news, as Hugo Lloris is out because of injury.

The 34-year-old is struggling with a muscle problem and is expected to miss Saturday’s derby game against Arsenal.

According to the Guardian, the French shot-stopper is a huge doubt for this weekend. So, this indicates that Antonio Conte has to give a debut to Fraser Forster.

Forster signed for Tottenham on a free transfer after his contract with Southampton expired. The goalkeeper made 134 appearances with the Saints in his eight years stay.  

After joining the club, the once England international has yet to appear on the field. He spent his time on the bench as an unused substitute for the club in every match so far. 

Another worrying thing is that Forster has not played a single minute in any competition for almost the last five months. Many believe that this is a huge risk for Conte to maintain his unbeaten streak in a derby like this.

At GIVEMESPORT, Dean Jones told: “The alternative to Lloris is that Fraser Forster comes in for what would be his Tottenham debut in a massive fixture”.

He also talked about the risk for Tottenham Hotspur, as he added: “I’m sure Forster will have confidence that he could cope with an occasion like that because that is what you are bought and told to prepare for as a backup goalkeeper, but that’d be a huge moment for him and a risky moment potentially for [Antonio] Conte.”

Senior Journalist Tom Barclay also confirmed the news of Lloris’s injury. He told to GiveMeSport: “It would be a big blow, he’s the captain as well as their number one goalkeeper”.

Barclay also added how much the Spurs squad will miss their first-choice keeper: “Fraser Forster would come in and he’s earned his move to Tottenham, he’s got lots of Premier League experience, but you can’t take away the qualities that Lloris has as both a leader and as a goalkeeper.”

Reports suggest that Lloris has suffered a thigh injury. The France International’s missing out on the game will be a huge blow for Antonio Conte, as the keeper started all eight games in the Premier League and Champions League. 

Other than Lloris and Forster, Tottenham Hotspur’s only keeper is Brandon Austin, who has no experience with the first team. Conte has faith in the former Southampton keeper as he has experience of 400 matches.
