Gylfi Sigurdsson has told his Tottenham Hotspur teammates to regroup after the north London club were beaten for the first time in 13 Premier League matches at Anfield.

Luis Suarez gave Liverpool an early lead before Jan Vertonghen scored a brace, notching goals either side of half-time.  An erroneous back-pass by Kyle Walker and a clumsy Benoit Assou-Ekotto foul on Suarez saw Tottenham's lead slip away, however, and the Reds took three points thanks to Stewart Downing and Steven Gerrard. 

Sigurdsson believes Spurs only have themselves to blame for losing the match, but that they still deserved more for their performance.

"We deserved more than we got at Anfield, so that shows how good the team is," he told Tottenham's official website.

"They have dangerous players, especially Suarez up front, but i thought once it went to 2-1 we controlled the game.  In the end, we lost the game ourselves."

The Iceland midfielder wants Tottenham to go on another run of good form after their lead was overturned, and is confident the side can string more good results together.

"Hopefully we can go on another good run between now and the end of the season," he added.

"We've been in unbelievable form and sometimes things like this happen.  We have to make sure we stay together and get ready for the next game."

Tottenham's next match sees them take on Inter Milan at the San Siro on Thursday night, where they will take a 3-0 lead into the Europa League round of 16 second leg.

They will then have just three days to wait after the trip to Italy for their next Premier League game, when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage.
