Tottenham defender Bassong expects instant response from Cup exit

Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong expects an instant response from their Carling Cup defeat to Arsenal.

Bassong says West Ham could be in for a shock at Upton Park on Saturday when the likes of Rafael van der Vaart, Luka Modric and Heurelho Gomes are expected to return to the starting line-up.

"It is a bad thing for us to go out of the Carling Cup so early, but we need to bounce back," said the Frenchman.

"I don't think losing to Arsenal is going to affect us because we have a strong squad.

"It will be a test for us but we have a good squad and everybody in it can play well."
