Tottenham defender Ledley King has called for his teammates to get over their midweek Champions League win over FC Twente in time for Aston Villa’s visit this weekend.

King says it is vital for Spurs to bounce back after tiring European matches and make sure they achieve positive results in the league otherwise it could become a long year.

“This is what we've struggled to do in recent years,” King told the London Evening Standard.

“When we've been in Europe in the past, our League form has suffered, so that's what we want to put right this season. We slipped up against Wigan and losing that game gives us an incentive not to let it happen again.

“People are now looking at us after we've played our European games. The spotlight is on us and teams are waiting for us to slip up, saying we're the same old Tottenham.

“We don't want to be like that. We're at home to Villa and those are the games that we need to take three points from.

“We needed to bounce back against Twente after losing to West Ham and we didn't dwell on that and got the result we wanted. Now we will think about Saturday's game.”
