Tottenham should be worried about the loss of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris while Mauricio Pochettino has to turn things around soon or risk the sack, according to former Premier League star Glen Johnson.

Spurs’ recent 3-0 loss to Brighton came days after a Champions League thumping by Bayern Munich, who came out on top in north London 7-2.

Lloris brutal arm injury, picked up in the loss to Brighton, has further dented Spurs’ hopes of recovering from their rocky start.

Johnson believes losing Lloris will have a huge impact on Tottenham’s already bleak season.

“Whenever a side loses their goalkeeper it’s a big loss because they are almost like the quarterback for the team,” he told BetDaq.  

“A top-quality keeper is so important to a successful team, so and the fact that Hugo Lloris is also the Spurs captain makes things that much worse.

“It’s never easy for a back-four to lose their goalkeeper because every player has their own way of doing things.

“So there is going to be an adjustment period while the new keeper gets bedded in and unfortunately for Tottenham, their current league position doesn’t really give them much time for that.”

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also under pressure following the club’s loss to Newcastle in the Premier League.

United have now lost three games in the league this season.

Johnson explained that Pochettino, who reached the Champions League final with Spurs last season, will begin to feel under pressure if results don’t turn for the better, as will Solskjaer.

“There’s obviously a long way until the end of the season, but if things don’t improve you’ve got to fear for Mauricio Pochettino and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Tottenham and Manchester United,” he added.

“You might think both managers have got plenty of time to turn things around.

“But they’ll need to do it pretty quickly as at the moment both of them look like they are managing mid-table sides, not the Premier League powerhouses we are so used to seeing.”
