Danny Rose says Tottenham Hotspur still have a lot of work to do ahead of the north London derby on Saturday.

Spurs have failed to win their last three Premier League games after defeats by West Browmich Albion and Liverpool and a draw with Sunderland.

I stood back and thought there is still a lot of work to be done for myself and the team

Mauricio Pochettino had won the opening two top-flight games of his Tottenham reign, and Rose accepted that Spurs should be doing a lot better.

“We went to West Ham on the opening day of the season and won with ten men so we started to look up. We then played QPR in our second game and played brilliantly and won 4-0. Everyone was buzzing,” Rose told talkSPORT.

“Then we had our first real test of the season playing Liverpool and we got beaten 3-0 at home. It’s been up and down.

“We don’t know how good we are or how good we can be but the last two results against Sunderland and West Brom have been very disappointing. They were two games we felt we should be winning, especially the Sunderland game, so it’s confusing at the minute. We should be doing a lot better than we have done recently.

“After the QPR game I thought, ‘wow, we’re a really good team and we might have half a chance of doing something this season’, but then we played Liverpool and it was a huge reality check for myself. I stood back and thought there is still a lot of work to be done for myself and the team.”
