Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is out of Tottenham's Europa League clash with Lazio on Thursday due to a hamstring injury 

Manager Andre Villas-Boas has vowed to make a few changes to his team, which could mean a debut for France captain Hugo Lloris in goal.

Scott Parker (Achilles), Heurelho Gomes (ankle), Jake Livermore (groin), Younes Kaboul and Benoit Assou-Ekotto (both knee) are out.

Tottenham squad: Lloris, Friedel, Cudicini, Smith, Vertonghen, Gallas, Naughton, Dawson, Walker, Dempsey, Huddlestone, Lennon, Bale, Dembele, Jenas, Carroll, Obika, Sigurdsson, Falque, Townsend, Sandro, Mason, Defoe.
