Dele Alli insists Tottenham's Europa League humbling will be forgotten if they go on to win the Premier League.

Spurs suffered a chastening 5-1 aggregate defeat to Borussia Dortmund after going down 2-1 at White Hart Lane on Thursday night.

But they remain in the hunt for a first league title since 1961, lying five points behind leaders Leicester with eight games remaining.

We know we are a great team. We can't let this dishearten us. We've got to keep the form we've had in the Premier League and carry on until the end of the season.

If we win the league this will be forgotten. It's a bit of a blow for the confidence but it's important that we keep our heads up and in the next game get the three points and get back on track.

We are second in the league, five points behind Leicester. It's important we don't think about that too much and don't get carried away too much with ourselves.

It's just about taking each game as it comes and hopefully being up there at the end of the season.

Signed from MK Dons in February, the 19-year-old was spent the remainder of last season on loan at his home-town club, helping them secure automatic promotion from League One.

It meant Alli's first appearance for Spurs only arrived on Wednesday, when his penalty helped overcome the Championship Bees 2-1 at Hotspur Way.

The midfielder converted the second spot-kick of the match in stoppage-time, with Shaq Coulthirst having scored the first before Jermaine Udumaga pulled one back at the death.

Toby Alderweireld also played his first match for Spurs since joining from Atletico Madrid, starting the match alongside fellow new boys Kevin Wimmer and Kieran Trippier.
