Speaking at the Sport Industry Breakfast club in London this morning, Scudamore said: "Incidents and events shape policy, shape developments, shape progress.

"What we will certainly be doing is looking at every aspect of what happened and if there are ways and means of improving, if there are ways and means of making it better in the future...we will do everything to make sure we reduce to the point of elimination, if we possibly can, things like that.

"There are no guarantees but we will do whatever we can to improve."

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is confident his players will put aside the trauma of Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest tomorrow when they return to White Hart Lane for the first time since seeing the Bolton midfielder collapse.

Redknapp admitted last night that Saturday was a "horrendous" experience for all of his squad but while he is keen to see Muamba make a full recovery, he is mindful his players must concentrate on the key games they have coming up against Stoke tomorrow night and Chelsea on Saturday.

"It was traumatic for everyone, but the lads were back in training yesterday morning and we have a big week coming ahead now so we have to go again now," he said.
