“We’re out of luck. Four serious injuries came out in a week.”
Starting goalkeeper Lloris injured his knee and wingback Sessegnon injured his leg muscles, while starting midfielder Bentancourt was unable to play the rest of the season due to knee surgery, and back-up agent Bisuma also left due to ankle surgery.
