"It's not good enough!" - Hugo Lloris comments on Tottenham's poor form

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has slammed the club's recent form.

When Daniel Levy chose to replace Tim Sherwood with Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager, there was a sense of excitement after the Argentine had led Southampton to an eighth place finish.

After a fairly quiet summer, Spurs made a great start to the season, beating West Ham and QPR in the first two games of the season to claim top spot in the Premier League.

Yet since then, things have become increasingly difficult for Pochettino, particularly at home. Heading into Sunday's game with Stoke City, Tottenham had lost home games to Liverpool, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle, winning just twice on their own patch.

And after first half goals from Bojan and Jonathan Walters, Spurs were staring down the barrel of another home defeat. Whilst Nacer Chadli's second half strike gave them hope, it was another home loss for Pochettino - and the pressure is gradually mounting on him.

With a two week break from Premier League action, Pochettino now has time to gather his thoughts in a bid to turn his side's fortunes around, but goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says that he and his team mates just aren't playing well enough at the moment.

"We need to keep working and improve as a team, and improve individually and show more, because at the moment it's not good enough," Lloris told Spurs TV.

"We didn't play the game that we wanted, and especially when they scored the first goal we didn't find any solution on the pitch. After that the consequence was the first goal," he added.
