Hugo Lloris is out for four weeks with a hamstring injury, throwing a rare opportunity in the direction of his deputy Michel Vorm.
The Dutch keeper came off the bench to replace Lloris in the 1-1 draw at Everton at the weekend and played well, but he now faces a bigger challenge, as he looks set to start regularly over the next month.
Some Spurs fans are doubting Vorm’s ability to replace Lloris, yet most are getting behind the squad’s deputy keeper. Here’s how they reacted on Twitter.
Following further assessment of the hamstring injury sustained by Hugo, we can confirm he's expected to be out of action for around 4 weeks.

#thfc Hugo Lloris has been ruled out for about a month. Bad news as Vorm hasn't always looked confident as a deputy. Big period for him now.

Lloris out for a month, adding that to my list of reasons to drink clorox

#thfc Lloris injury could just be bad luck but both him & Wimmer have suffered muscle injuries post-Euros (after almost none last season).

My god Coutinho vs. Vorm. Sambuca needed before the game then

I have major doubts surrounding Vorm's ability to catch,

Some forget superb save Vorm made at 0-1 down to Everton, which probably would've killed us off & rather criticise past performances.#THFC

Ive seen multiple Spurs sides over the years in which Vorm would be considered an upgrade on the keeper we had at the time. Get a grip

Losing Hugo is bad but Vorm will benefit from knowing he's definitely playing and having a few games in a row. #COYS
