Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is facing a dilemma after Friedel's early season form.

Wenger, working as a pundit on French TV, said: “Brad Friedel saved Villas-Boas [in the league game against Norwich] and he owes him a form of recognition for saving the match – but it doesn’t mean he won’t play Hugo Lloris.

“When they see Lloris in training, they will understand quite quickly that they’ve got a hell of a player.

“Let’s not be dramatic, he has a guy ahead of him who’s 41 and you have to plan his replacement, and this might happen in the next 15 days or three weeks.”
