Paul Lambert has challenged his Aston Villa players to bounce back quickly from their 8-0 mauling at Chelsea when they entertain Tottenham on Boxing Day.
Villa's six-game unbeaten run in all competitions was ended in emphatic fashion as they suffered their heaviest defeat in the Barclays Premier League.
But Lambert knows Villa cannot dwell on the events of Sunday, and said: "It can happen. I've been on the end of it before and I'm pretty sure some of their lads would have been on the end of heavy defeats. But you have to bounce back and it's about how we react."
