Boost for Tottenham as star man fit to face Man United

Tottenham Hotspur have been handed a major boost ahead of the upcoming campaign as Hugo Lloris is tipped to start against Manchester United this weekend, Daily Star reports.

The 28-year-old has now returned to full fitness ahead of the Premier League opener on Saturday after recovering from a fractured wrist during pre-season.

Michel Vorm was lined up between the sticks in place of the France international, but it seems that Spurs are likely to give the role back to their first-choice keeper.

Lloris was even close to leaving White Hart Lane this summer as both United and Paris Saint-Germain were considering moves for the player.

The Red Devils made him one of their top goalkeeping candidates amid speculation that David de Gea was set to leave Old Trafford for a move to Real Madrid.

However, with De Gea yet to agree to any transfer, Tottenham looks set to keep hold of their star man ahead of the new season.
