Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas intends to recall Brad Friedel for their derby with Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Villas-Boas is planning to recall Friedel for his revenge mission against Chelsea, who sacked him last season.

Hugo Lloris pleaded with Villas-Boas to keep faith in him but looks set to be disappointed. Friedel was frustrated by the decision to axe him for the Aston Villa game, while it is believed a clutch of Spurs players were also stunned by the choice.
