Lewis Holtby describes last week's 6-0 defeat to Manchester City was a "nightmare" and said that he is desperate to get a positive result against Manchester United this afternoon.

Lewis Holtby has said that last week's humiliation at Manchester City has fired Tottenham Hotspur up for this afternoon's clash with Manchester United.

The German midfielder has found it difficult to get past the 6-0 drubbing at the Etihad Stadium, and said that the squad is desperate to get rid of the "bad feeling" with a victory at White Hart Lane.

"It's hard to sleep," The Mirror quotes the 23-year-old as saying. "It's not like we just move on with it, it's hard – it's not easy for your head.

"Everyone is more motivated now to get a result and not have a ­nightmare like last Sunday. You feel disappointed but you have to bounce back. You have to think positive as it's a long season.

"I hope we make that bad feeling stop by getting a positive result. Everyone knows what happened last Sunday so we are ­trying to go at the other Manchester side with everything we have."

Spurs have gone three games without a win in the Premier League.
