Friedel dropped as Spurs triumph

Hugo Lloris was a spectator for most of his Barclays Premier League debut as goals from Steven Caulker and Aaron Lennon secured a 2-0 win over a poor Aston Villa and gave Tottenham their fourth straight Barclays Premier League win.

Jermain Defoe smashed a low shot wide from a Gareth Bale corner, but Caulker was standing in the right place at the right time, the ball clipping his heel and flying past Brad Guzan after 58 minutes.

Soon after Spurs put the game to bed when Lennon picked the ball up off Clint Dempsey, strode past his marker and shot beyond Guzan in a game which saw another American, Brad Friedel, dropped after a record run of 310 consecutive league games.
