Tottenham Hotspur midfielders Mousa Dembélé and Eric Dier speak to their club’s official website ahead of Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup tie after suffering back-to-back defeats.

Dembélé: “I had some good experiences at Fulham. Again, we need to concentrate on our own game to turn this feeling around. It’s a tough game and they will be motivated to play against us, so we need to deal with that. We’ve built something very good over the last two years and teams take us seriously, we need to know that and to adapt. It’s like anything, we have to play our own game, we have to dictate with the quality we have. That’s what we need to do.”

Dier: “It’s a difficult match and a difficult place to go and play football. We’re all looking forward to it and it’s great to play in the FA Cup. There really is no easy game, no matter who you play and we learned that in the last round against Wycombe. We’ll be ready, for sure. Whenever you go through a testing situation you have to learn from it and change it. It’s what the FA Cup is all about - surprises - and we have to make sure we’re at our best, and we will be.”
