Tottenham are boosted by the return of striker Emmanuel Adebayor for Sunday’s game against Aston Villa after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Andre Villas-Boas is expected to recall Brad Friedel in goal despite a solid performance from understudy Hugo Lloris in Thursday’s Europa League draw against Panathinaikos.

Kyle Naughton (foot), Scott Parker (Achilles), Jake Livermore (groin), Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul (both knee) are all out.

Squad: Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Cudicini, Smith, Gallas, Dawson, Walker, Vertonghen, Caulker, Falque, Huddlestone, Mason, Bale, Lennon, Sandro, Dembele, Dempsey, Sigurdsson, Carroll, Townsend, Defoe, Adebayor, Obika.
