Kyle Walker: Tottenham defender in action against Arsenal

Spurs lost 2-0 to their local rivals told with goals in each half from Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky at the Emirates Stadium.

Apart from an early opportunity for Christian Eriksen, Tottenham created very little going forward and the home side never looked like failing to progress to the fourth round.

Having been on the end of two 5-2 thrashings on the same ground, Walker knows the defeat could have been much more painful.

"It's disappointing and frustrating to lose to the local rivals," Walker said.

"But we showed a lot of character. We kept going. We have come here previously and it has been higher than 2-0."

Walker is looking to return to winning ways next weekend when Tottenham return to Premier League action against Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane.

"We have got to pick ourselves up. We have a big game on Saturday, a London derby and we need to get the three points because we have been fantastic (in the league)," he added.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
