Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is fit for Tottenham's Premier League game against Aston Villa on Sunday after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Adebayor boost for Spurs

Andre Villas-Boas is expected to recall Brad Friedel in goal despite a solid performance from his 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 out.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has no fresh injury problems.

Midfielder Stephen Ireland (broken arm) and central defender Richard Dunne (groin) remain sidelined although the former could return after the international break.

Lambert has to decide whether to recall striker Darren Bent to the starting line-up against one of his former clubs after he came off the substitutes' bench to equalise against West Brom last weekend.


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

Aston Villa (from): Guzan, Given, Lowton, Bennett, Lichaj, Clark, Vlaar, Baker, Herd, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Bannan, Delph, Holman, N'Zogbia, Bent, Agbonlahor, Benteke, Bowery, Weimann, Burke, Johnson, Williams.
