Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen admits the north London outfit need to bounce back quickly after the disappointing defeat at Watford on Sunday.

Spurs came into the Watford clash on the back of an impressive 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford, but they appeared to underestimate the Hornets and paid the price with a 2-1 defeat.

Eriksen has urged his teammates to work hard and respond positively against Liverpool when they clash on September 15, after the international break.

"We're very disappointed," the Denmark international told the club's official website. "We want and expect to win every game and losing is not something we often do, luckily.

"We need to get back on track and do that against Liverpool. That's the perfect occasion to come back and we'll do that. It's not something that often happens to us.

"That's what everyone felt, everyone had the feeling that they were not going to score but they got a free-kick in a dangerous place, a decent cross and a good header.

"We had chances, didn't finish the game and they scored from two set-pieces - we can't be satisfied with that.

"The result against United (3-0 last week) was exceptional but we're down to earth again. This is football, anything can happen in any game, it goes so quickly with ups and downs."
