Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been blunt about his side's start to the season.
Spurs are without a win after four games, scoring just three times.
Ahead of this weekend's visit to Sunderland, Lloris has told it how it is.
Speaking to The Mail, the French international said: "The last month was very bad for us. We need to improve quickly, gain some confidence and rise up the table fast.
"It is not easy to start the season at Manchester United. We were unlucky to lose there but we deserved what we got against Stoke because we were 2-0 up at home and drew 2-2."
That was not the only lead Spurs let slip, in the following match allowing Leicester City to peg them back after going 1-0 up. Both matches Tottenham would have looked at and thought they could have taken six points from, while even the game at home to Everton was a result they took three points from last season.
The good news is Spurs have new signings Heung-Min Son and Clinton N'Jie to welcome into the side, who are both capable of providing the spark they need to get going.
Their visit to Sunderland is a match they will feel they can record a win from, and any further dropped points will be disappointing especially in light of their slow start.
