The World Cup-winning goalkeeper has not featured for Spurs since a 1-0 win over Manchester City on February 5 and therefore been absent during a run where the club exited the FA Cup and Champions League. It has contributed towards the uncertainty over Antonio Conte's future, but in rare welcome news for the north London outfit, Frenchman Lloris was able to play against an Ipswich XI at Hotspur Way on Thursday, Planet Sport understands. Lloris was expected to be sidelined for between six to eight weeks after he sustained a knee issue in the final minutes of an impressive victory over City last month. The former France international missed nine matches in total and even though back-up stopper Fraser Forster deputised to good effect to keep Tottenham's top-four tilt on track, their inconsistent form continued with losses at Sheffield United and AC Milan consigning the club to another trophyless season.
