Defeat should Spur us on
Heung-Min Son insists Tottenham cannot afford to dwell on Saturday's 4-1 humbling at Leicester ahead of their Champions League showdown with AC Milan.
Rodrigo Bentancur grabbed a first-half opener for the visitors but goals from Nampalys Mendy, James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho and Harvey Barnes condemned Antonio Conte's side to a heavy defeat.
Spurs go to Milan for the first leg of their last-16 tie tomorrow and Son knows actions speak louder than words.
The striker, 30, said: "I wouldn't say we are confident but words are not enough. We just have to go there and show on the pitch, that's the most important thing.
"I can stand here and speak all day but the most important thing is on the pitch. We have to be as a unit and we have to be all together in the same way.
"Of course, it will be really tough, don't get me wrong. We have to be more than ready, more than 100%.
"We have to recover well, eat well, sleep well and go there and give it absolutely everything to achieve our aim.
"You learn more in a bad performance than in a good one. The performance was really poor and the fans deserve more than they received.
"We are playing in the Champions League on Tuesday, this was everyone's dream and we wanted to be in this position last year.
"This could be the most important game because it's a knockout stage so we have to bounce back stronger than ever. This will be a very important game.
"This could be the biggest lesson for us and this lesson should not be happening in Milan."
Alex Iwobi is loving life under Sean Dyche — but admits the new Everton manager's training regime is wearing him out.
Iwobi, 26, has been one the club’s best performers over the last 18 months.
Dyche is the fifth different permanent boss he has played for at Goodison Park since arriving in 2019 and the Nigeria international knows he cannot rest on his laurels.
Speaking ahead of tonight's Merseyside derby, he said: "Of course it has been tough for the past three years — it wasn't a great start when I signed — but I'm probably the happiest I've been for a while.
"I am consistently playing a lot of football and it's a very good club with a lot of history in the Premier League. I am happy, I just hopefully can maintain that and keep going.
"Everyone has to do a lot of selfless work for the team. It's something we have tapped into and we were able to get a result against Arsenal.
"They were our best running stats of the season and we have set a standard we have to continue to meet.
"Maybe it is a shift in mindset. Now we know we can do it, we should have been able to do it before.
"I was shattered [after the 1-0 win over Arsenal]. I stayed at home recovering. I couldn't move. When I got back I was slumped on my sofa."
Bigger than Kingsmeadow
Erin Cuthbert says Women's Super League champions Chelsea have outgrown Kingsmeadow and hope to play every game at Stamford Bridge within a couple of years.
The Blues have been based at the 4,850-capacity stadium in the royal borough of Kingston since 2017 but an explosion in support has seen Emma Hayes' side playing select fixtures at the Bridge.
A club record 38,300 fans turned out at the stadium to watch them beat Tottenham 3-0 last November, while 10,000 were in attendance for the Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain the following month.
And Cuthbert, 24, believes the women's team should soon join the men in playing all of their games there. The Scottish midfielder said: "We have outgrown Kingsmeadow.
"England won the Euros, it's grown the profile of the game and everything has changed.
"We are only a couple of years away from being able to play at Stamford Bridge every game. We want to play 15 games there next year, then 20.
"We have to keep pushing the standards. Growth never comes from comfort zones."
Chelsea are unbeaten at Kingsmeadow in the WSL since Brighton defeated them in February 2021.
Back in the dugout
Neil Warnock has come out of retirement to manage Huddersfield until the end of the season.
The 74-year-old, who stepped away from management after leaving his previous job at Middlesbrough last year, will take charge at the John Smith's Stadium on Thursday.
It will be a second spell at the club for Warnock, who guided Huddersfield to the Championship in 1995.
He said: "I'm really excited about this challenge. My first spell at Huddersfield Town had everything.
"We went to Wembley twice, moved into the new stadium and really built the club from nothing. It was a special time.
"I’m coming back to help the club but also [chairman] Dean Hoyle. I know what he has done behind the scenes and I've always had a lot of time for him.
"I've looked at the fixtures and we've got some fantastic games to come. I want to come back and put smiles on faces."
Warnock replaces Mark Fotheringham, who was sacked last week with Huddersfield lying in the Championship relegation zone, and will be assisted by former Terriers favourite Ronnie Jepson.
Skinner eyes stadium return
Boss Rehanne Skinner hopes her side will get the chance to return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before the end of the Women's Super League season.
Spurs played at the 62,850-seater venue yesterday for the first time since May and suffered a 2-1 defeat to title-chasing Manchester United, despite a spirited display.
The North Londoners only have four more home league fixtures to come this term but conversations have taken place about them playing at the stadium again.
Skinner said: "From the conversations we've had, I'm sure we're trying to get as many games [as possible] in the stadium.
"Around the other events and the men's schedule, clearly there is a lot to juggle. But yeah, as a club we want to try and get as many games in the stadium as is feasible."
Given the men's team will be playing away from home, the fixtures with Aston Villa (April 23) and Brighton (April 30) appear the most likely candidates to be switched from Brisbane Road.
