Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is set for an extended spell on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury.
The 36-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Spurs' hard-fought 1-0 win over Manchester City, but the France international needed treatment towards the end of the contest after a challenge.
Scans revealed that he sustained a ligament damage to his knee, albeit he is not expected to undergo surgery.
The former Lyon man will be out for six and eight weeks and will sit out both Champions League Round of 16 fixtures against AC Milan, Premier League matches against Leicester City, West Ham, Chelsea, Wolves and Nottingham Forest, as well as the FA Cup fifth round clash at Sheffield United.
England international Fraser Forster will take Lloris's place in goal as Spurs enter a pivotal part of their season over the next few weeks.
Forster, who signed from Southampton on a free transfer last summer, has made four appearances for Spurs since his move to the club to provide cover for the Frenchman.
He has made only one Premier League appearance in the Boxing Day 2-2 draw with Brentford as his teammate had only just returned from the World Cup in Qatar after playing in the final for France against Argentina.
Despite number of mistakes from Lloris this season, his absence will be a blow to Spurs.
