Brad Friedel set for recall

Tottenham goalkeeper Brad FriedelTottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is set to recall Brad Friedel for his side’s Premier League clash with Chelsea a week on Saturday, The Daily Mail claim.

The north London club have a plethora of experienced goalkeepers in their midst, with the ageing American and summer signing Hugo Lloris fighting it out for a starting berth.

The France international has said to be frustrated by not being installed as first-choice straight away, but did get his Premier League debut in the 2-0 win over Aston Villa last weekend.

Despite this, Friedel is set to be recalled in the London derby with Chelsea, which will cast more doubt over Lloris’ role at the club and further infuriate the French stopper.

Friedel had played 310 consecutive Premier League games before being dropped last weekend, and has previously stated that he is not ready to relinquish the No.1 jersey at White Hart Lane.
