FORMER Sheffield United full back Kyle Naughton has declared himself the man to fill the void left by Benoit Assou-Ekotto ahead of Tottenham’s Europa League opener against Lazio tomorrow.

Assou-Ekotto missed Spurs’ game on Sunday with a knee problem that may require a ‘washout’ procedure. Villas-Boas decided to hand Naughton his full league debut for Tottenham.

“It was great to get the three points and that the gaffer gave me a chance to show what I can do,” he said. “I played at left-back a few times for Norwich (on loan) last season and hopefully now I can carry on playing. Towards the end, I was tiring a little and they got in behind us a little but the more games I play, the stronger I’ll get. I just hope I can carry on now and play in the Europa League.”
