Tottenham boss Conte: We can use derby loss against Eintracht Frankfurt

Antonio Conte says Tottenham's Champions League trip to Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday is the chance to quickly get over Saturday's north London derby defeat at Arsenal.

Spurs lost 3-1 at Emirates Stadium for their first Premier League defeat of the season.

They have won one and lost one of their opening two Champions League matches to sit second in Group D.

"We have a chance to play another game. I think this is important," said Conte.

"After a loss you want to play another game quickly, and we have this possibility tomorrow.

"We know very well the game will be very tough because we are playing against Eintracht Frankfurt, they won the Europa League last season.

"We are talking about one of the best teams in Germany. At the same time we want to play our cards here.

"I always say, this group, there is a great balance, and tomorrow it will be an important game for us, and also for them. Not decisive, but an important game."
