Tottenham must pick themselves up after Arsenal defeat - Walker

Though their loss in the north London derby was "frustrating", the Spurs right-back argues that they never gave up in their FA Cup third-round tie and looks ahead to Crystal Palace
Tottenham defender Kyle Walker says that Spurs must pick themselves up for their Premier League trip to Crystal Palace after an FA Cup defeat to Arsenal.

A 2-0 loss in the third round at the Emirates Stadium means that Tim Sherwood's side are now out of both domestic cup competitions but still sit fifth in the English top flight.

Walker argues that Saturday's match was not without positives but is looking ahead to their trip to Selhurst Park on January 11, when Spurs could extend their unbeaten league record under their new boss.

"Losing to the local rivals is always frustrating but we need to pick ourselves up for Palace on Saturday," the England international told the club's official website.

"We did alright but obviously we didn't come away with the result that we and the fans wanted so it was a disappointment.

"I think we showed a lot of character, we kept going, [but] the ball just didn't fall for us.

"I thought [Arsenal] had a few good chances in the first half but we came right back at them in the second."
