Hugo Lloris has told Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas he needs to be playing every week.

AVB admitted Brad Friedel - who made way for France No 1 Lloris after 310 consecutive Prem appearances - remains his first choice.

Les Bleus skipper Lloris, 25, said: "Over the past month, I've played only three games. It takes a little more concentration, especially working at training.

"I try to compensate, but the truth is the game of the weekend is what matters. I was used to playing in games every three days with Lyon.

"And to progress, to be effective, it's better to play every week with the team."
