Paulo Gazzaniga says Tottenham need their home form to be “strong” if Mauricio Pochettino’s side are to recover from a dip in form.
Hugo Lloris faces a lay-off until January at the earliest after sustaining a dislocated elbow during Spurs’ defeat to Brighton, a setback that Pochettino felt contributed to his team’s attitude three minutes into their loss at the Amex Stadium.
Gazzaniga, 27, has featured just 15 times for Tottenham in all competitions since his arrival from Southampton in 2017, but the keeper insists he is ready to stand in and help improve Spurs’ form whilst Lloris recovers.
“I wasn’t comfortable seeing Hugo coming out of the game in that way. Everyone knows what he means for the team and for the club, our captain.”
Gazzaniga could be set to feature in goal for Spurs in key clashes versus Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League, as well as against Bayern Munich, Red Star Belgrade and Olympiakos in the Champions League group stage, which all come before the end of the calendar year.
