Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be rested for the visit of his former team Lyon tomorrow night.

Tottenham Hotspur coach Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that Hugo Lloris will play no part against his former club Lyon in the Europa League tomorrow night.

The French international joined Spurs from the Ligue 1 side during the summer and has since gone on to establish himself as the number one goalkeeper at White Hart Lane.

However, Villas-Boas told reporters this afternoon that the experienced Brad Friedel would be given a chance between the posts for the visit of Lyon.

England international Jermain Defoe has also been ruled out with an ankle problem, while Sandro and Younes Kaboul are long-term absentees.
