Martin Jol: "We didn't play badly and their staff told us they couldn't believe their luck that they had won.

"You have to give them credit because, if you score three goals at White Hart Lane, normally you win games. In the first 20 minutes, we outplayed them and we had chances. All credit to them, but it wasn't deserved. I feel we possibly played out best game this year.

"I can't fault them. In the [Kevin] Keegan era, we would have won 6-3. We are not as strong as last year collectively, I can't recall conceding three goals.

"We had at least 20 attempts on goal, so it was about Shay Given as well. It was a combination of things - being unlucky and Shay Given.

"The players can talk about it for hours but we've got another game on Wednesday."
