Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas insists that his players will respond to their cup defeat to Leeds United in a positive manner when they face Norwich City at Carrow Road tonight.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he is relieved to be back in action tonight just three days after losing to Leeds United.

Spurs were knocked out of the FA Cup at Elland Road on Sunday in a 2-1 defeat to the Championship side.

Villas-Boas believes that his squad should relish the chance to bounce back at the first possible opportunity against Norwich City, who are reeling from their own cup shock at the hands of non-league Luton Town.

He said: "It's good to have a game so quickly, it gives us an opportunity back in the Premier League and in a situation like this, the quicker the game comes, the better.

"We're all obviously disappointed that our unbeaten run has come to an end, a run since the defeat at Everton, but we've been through it before and hopefully we can bounce back."

Spurs travel to Carrow Road tonight on a run of just one defeat in their last 11 Premier League games.
