Tottenham keeper Lloris pleased with Premier League debut

Hugo Lloris was happy to make his Premier League debut for Tottenham on Sunday.

Lloris' Spurs team-mate Brad Friedel saw his record run of 310 consecutive league outings end on Sunday when manager Andre Villas-Boas selected the Frenchman to start in goal against Aston Villa.

He told L'Equipe: "I am happy because we won. It was an important match because it was my first start in Premier League.

"It has been quite a special month (but) not complicated. It was everything all around me that had a bad role (to play).

"For me, everything with Brad Friedel, the goalkeeping coach and even the manager, has gone off smoothly."
