Moussa Sissoko has insisted that the Tottenham Hotspur squad remains united and all players are focused on turning around their season.

Spurs have suffered an horrific start to the new campaign having been humiliated by Bayern Munich and Colchester United in respective cup competitions whilst also finding themselves in the bottom half of the Premier League table and confirmed our worst start to a season since 2008/09.

Sissoko has started all ten of Tottenham’s top flight matches and whilst admitting he is happy to be featuring regularly is determined to see the club start to return to winning ways.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side were once again unable to hold onto a lead when they scored early against Liverpool but fell to a 2-1 defeat after both goals came from errors from Spurs defenders.

The French international highlighted that the players could have done better when in possession against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

With a trip to Everton next up for Spurs on Sunday afternoon, Sissoko believes that if the squad can stick together they will get their reward.

He told the official Spurs site: “Like always, I give my best for the team and that’s what I will always do, like every player, until the end of the season.

“We are together and we want success together. Of course, the results in the last few weeks haven’t been great for us, but that’s football, that’s life.

“Sometimes it can be like this and we have to work our way through it, stick together and I’m sure good things will follow soon. Hopefully, that will start against Everton next weekend.”

“We lost, but we can take some positives,” he added when reflecting on the loss to Liverpool.

“We started well, took the chance to score an early goal and maybe after that, we dropped too deep and so they were pushing.

“We defended well and Paulo (Gazzaniga) made some good saves. They had the possession and maybe we could have done better with the ball but we lost, we’re disappointed and now we need to see what we can do better for the next game and be ready for Everton, because this game will also be tough.”
