Friends Reunited for Lloris!

Tottenham have been drawn against Lyon in the Round of 32 of the Europa league, which if course makes for an early reunion for Hugo Lloris and his former club.

Based on the potential opposition Spurs could have faced, Lyon have to be considered to be one of the toughest teams we could have been drawn against, Sitting joint top of Ligue 1 with PSG, Lyon may no longer be the dominant force in French football, but even in selling several key players, including Lloris, they could be considered a better and more united team under former Arsenal player Remi Garde.

What will be interesting will be whether AVB selects Hugo Lloris against his former club, in a game I would imagine he would be desperate to play. This season there has been a policy of using a back up keeper for the Europa, but will Villas-Boas make a special case for Lloris?

Should Spurs get past Lyon, they potentially face Inter Milan, should the Italians get past Romanian Champions CFR Cluj, which is no certainty, based on current form.

Spurs will face Lyon on the Thursdays of the 14th and 21st of February and should we get past the French side would play their last 16 games on the 7th and 14th of March...
