Hugo Lloris is desperate to become the Spurs' first-choice keeper after making his Premier League debut against Aston Villa.
Boss Andre Villas-Boas decided to hand Lloris his league debut on Sunday as Spurs recorded a 2-0 win over the visiting Villa.
The Portuguese boss has since revealed he did not drop Brad Friedel due to performance issues but simply to give Lloris a taste of Premier League action following his summer switch from Lyon.
Lloris is prepared to battle with Friedel for the number one spot at White Hart Lane and is desperate to replace the veteran American as the club's first-choice custodian.
"I was used to playing in games every three days with Lyon. And to progress, to be effective, it's better to play every week," said the France international. "Over the past month, I've played only three games. It takes a little more concentration, especially working at training. I try to compensate, but the truth is the game on the weekend [is most important].
"From the moment I signed for Tottenham, I have invested 200 per cent. I show it every day in training with a lot of enthusiasm because all this is new to me and especially because it is the Premier League, certainly the best league in Europe.
"I am getting my bearings and I hope to play more and more, to be at my best. I still need a few games to find my rhythm."
