Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has called for talks between his team-mates to discuss the bad form Spurs have suffered lately.
The Belgian is confident the team can turn their season around after admitting their form so far this campaign has been nowhere near good enough.
Spurs suffered a fourth defeat at White Hart Lane against Stoke City, after which they were booed and the North London side fell to 12th in the Premier League table.
The 27-year-old is a key player for his national Belgium side, although has only started six out of 11 league games under new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. However, he remains optimistic that Tottenham can achieve highly this season.
"It's not good enough, but we are working hard to get to where we want to be,” Vertonghen is quoted by Sky Sports. “We want to be in the top four. We are looking for our best form.

“At the start of the season there where seven or eight teams wanting (to finish) top four, and two or three will be disappointed. I hope it's not us. I am confident we can finish in the top four.
“After this week we need to talk. Belief is still there. Hopefully we can be honest with each other, and turn things around."
After the international break Tottenham return to an away match at Hull City, a game they will be hoping to take all three points from in a bid to return to their reputation as a dominant side in English football.
