Tottenham defender Eric Dier admits defeat at Arsenal left him with "sleepless nights".

Spurs have since bounced back from the derby loss, though it is still front of mind for fans.

Dier told the club's website: "It hurts because it's more than a game. It does bother you a lot.

"There were sleepless nights after that game. But I believe over the course of the season, and I've said before after results like that, I still believe we're a good team and we will show that. That one game does mean a lot, but it's not all or nothing.

"It's early in the season, we have to stay calm and by 'we', I mean 'we' - we have to work together, improve together, gel together and I think we will. I think we'll get into a good place with all the players up to speed."
