Brazilian misses out so will leave White Hart Lane.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed Brad Friedel is his number one goalkeeper, raising doubts over Heurelho Gomes’ future at the club.
The 30-year-old was the Spurs boss’ first choice last term but Friedel’s arrival has caused Gomes to look for a new club in January.
Third-choice shot-stopper Carlo Cudicini was given the nod over the Brazilian despite Redknapp saying Gomes would start.
“I just changed my mind,” Redknapp said. “I thought it would be better for Carlo tonight.
“Gomes will get games. I will play him at Stoke in the Carling Cup next Tuesday.”
Redknapp will drop Cudicini for Sunday’s game against Liverpool, despite the Italian impressing in last night’s Europa League goalless draw against PAOK Salonika.
He gave away a first-half penalty, which PAOK missed, but made amends by pulling off three late saves to deny the Greek side and earn his side a valuable point.
“Yes, Carlo played well, but Brad Friedel has been fantastic,” Redknapp added. “At the moment, in the Premier League, Brad has the jersey.
“I think he’s been magnificent. I’m lucky. We’ve got three top goalkeepers here.”
