Peter Crouch is confident Tottenham will bounce straight back from their Carling Cup disappointment.
Spurs were knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the competition on Tuesday night as a Darron Gibson brace sealed victory for Manchester United.
United fielded a number of inexperienced players and Harry Redknapp was upset that his side had missed an opportunity to make it through to the last four.
Crouch, who came on as a substitute midway through the second half, was also surprised by how the match went but is not dwelling on the defeat.
"It was a bit of a strange game," he told the club's official website. "We started really well in the first half-hour and if we'd have scored first it might have been a very different game.
"But they got the first goal and at Old Trafford it's very hard to get that back. It was disappointing.
"Everyone was frustrated with how it went because it was the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup.
"We all wanted to progress and we have a good history in the competition that we wanted to continue."
Tottenham face a struggling Everton side in the Premier League on Sunday and Crouch is desperate to return to winning ways.
He said: "We have done fantastically well so far this season, this was a disappointment and hopefully it's a one-off.
"We now have to focus on the league and the FA Cup, starting with Everton on Sunday."
