Seb looks ahead

Sebastien Bassong's thoughts turned immediately to Stamford Bridge after Saturday's loss against United.

The champions turned on the style to end our 100 per cent winning start to the Premier League season at White Hart Lane.

Jermain Defoe's overhead kick gave us the dream start but United recovered to lead 2-1 at half-time after goals from Ryan Giggs and Anderson.

Ben Foster made a fine save and Peter Crouch hit the crossbar at 2-1, Paul Scholes was then sent off but the 10 men took a grip of the game and Wayne Rooney ended the contest with United's third.

Despite the defeat, we're still sitting fourth in the table and Sebastien was only thinking about the next challenge against Chelsea on Sunday as he left the Lane on Saturday night.

"It's hard to lose the first game of the season but we have to think about the next one," he said. "This game has gone and we have to look ahead.

"We started well, scored early and then kept going, kept playing, kept passing but we had a good team against us and made a few mistakes. That's football.

"We have to learn from our mistakes and move on quickly.

"We have to show a good reaction at Stamford Bridge, we have a good squad, a good spirit and that's what we intend to do."
