Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that Brad Friedel, and not Hugo Lloris, will start in goal for Tottenham against Lyon.
Friedel started the season as Tottenham’s number one but Hugo Lloris finally ousted the American as first-choice two months after moving to Spurs. AVB’s decision means that Lloris will not face his former side.
Elsewhere, William Gallas is expected to start in the Spurs defence.
Tottenham(from): Friedel, Lloris, Vertonghen, Gallas, Naughton, Dawson, Walker, Assou-Ekotto, Dempsey, Huddlestone, Lennon, Parker, Bale, Holtby, Dembele, Sigurdsson, Livermore, Bentaleb, Ceballos, Adebayor.
