Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has slammed his side and claimed they need to improve their performances if they are to finish in the top four.

Spurs followed up their defeat against Liverpool to a surprise defeat at home to Fulham, with the losses coming either side of a poor display in Milan which saw the north London side lose 4-1 to Inter.

And the Portuguese has insisted that Spurs need to bounce back with a positive performance when they visit Swansea this weekend.

He said to the Express: "We have not had to pick them up since the Fulham game. We have eight games left and it shifts very quickly if you don't get the right results. 

"We have to get our act together."

Spurs are currently fourth but have seen their eight-point lead over rivals Arsenal be reduced to just two. With a tricky run of fixtures coming up for AVB's side, three points in Wales could stand them in good stead.

The 35-year-old has put the defeat against Fulham down to other commitments and admitted that the performance wasn't up to scratch.

"It has nothing to with past experience. It wasn't a good performance against Fulham but we are involved in a top European competition, the Europa League," he added.
