Hugo Lloris is in the Tottenham Hotspur lineup to face Aston Villa. Come chat in our match thread.

The big news ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League encounter against Aston Villa is that Andre Villas-Boas has finally made the big switch in goal. It was always inevitable, but very few expected AVB to rip off the band-aid for this match. Hugo Lloris starts for Tottenham ahead of Brad Friedel.

Otherwise, Spurs' lineup is exactly what we expected. Emmanuel Adebayor still isn't fit to start, and Clint Dempsey is still preferred to Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Tottenham Hotspur starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Jan Vertonghen, Steven Caulker, William Gallas, Kyle Walker; Moussa Dembele, Sandro; Gareth Bale, Clint Dempsey, Aaron Lennon; Jermain Defoe

Aston Villa starting lineup (4-4-2 diamond): Brad Guzan; Joe Bennett, Ciaran Clark, Ron Vlaar, Matthew Lowton; Karim El Ahmadi, Fabian Delph, Marc Albrighton, Brett Holman; Christian Benteke, Gabriel Agbonlahor

Kickoff is at 3 p.m. local time, 10 a.m. ET from White Hart Lane. You don't get it on regular TV because lol Villa. It's super legal to watch on FOX Soccer 2 Go in the States and Sportsnet World Plus in Canuckland.
