Hugo Lloris says Tottenham Hotspur will be seeking revenge when they travel to Arsenal for their Carabao Cup quarter-final on Wednesday.

Two weeks ago, Spurs were beaten 4-2 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.

As the two sides prepare to meet again in the cup, Lloris sees it as a perfect chance to seek revenge on their North London rivals.

“Maybe it’s the good thing that we lost the Premier League game a few weeks ago because it is more motivation for us,” Lloris told Sky Sports.

“There is no more bad feeling than when you get a defeat. You always try to analyze and make things that we will not repeat again. It is another opportunity and we will try our best to go through.

Van Persie: Klopp gave me the best compliment of my career

Robin van Persie opened up on how his versatility led to Jurgen Klopp giving him the greatest compliment of his career.

“Every game that you lose it hurts, but of course when you lead 2-1, it’s true that Arsenal is playing very well this season and it is a difficult team to beat but I think we have the quality to do it.

“It is important to take every competition seriously, whatever the competition is.

“Of course there is a priority in the season but it is a League Cup game and if you go through there is a semi-final and a good chance.

“And then it is a derby so it is easier to prepare for because there always excitement and enjoyment to play that type of game.”
