Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says “the fans are right to criticise” after their poor start to the season.
Spurs have eight points from six Premier League matches and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two Colchester United on Tuesday.
Tottenham reached the Champions League final and finished fourth in the league last season.
“If we don’t get the results that people expect, we need to accept the criticism,” said Pochettino
“For nearly five years it was all praise for Tottenham. Now, if we deserve to be criticised, we need to accept that.”
‘Damage has happened that we need to fix’
Spurs have won only two of their eight games in all competitions this season, and five from 20 since they moved into their new stadium in April.
They have not won away in any competition since a 2-1 victory at Fulham on 20 January.
This season Spurs have thrown away two-goal leads to draw at Arsenal and Olympiakos, while they wasted a 1-0 lead in a 2-1 defeat at Leicester on Saturday.
Spurs, who have not won a trophy since 2008, are seventh in the Premier League, 10 points behind leaders Liverpool.
