Hugo Lloris has called on Tottenham to show more “pride” after their woeful 3-0 defeat against Manchester United.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford secured a critical win for under-fire Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and simultaneously ramped up the pressure on Spurs counterpart Nuno Espirito Santo, who faced loud criticism from his own fans on a wretched night for the hosts.

Many fans booed the players off the pitch after another dispiriting, toothless performance from goal-shy Tottenham, who again failed to register a shot on target and have now lost exactly half of their Premier League matches so far this season.

It was a third defeat in four games across all competitions after a narrow Carabao Cup win at Burnley was preceded by 1-0 losses at the hands of Vitesse Arnhem and rivals West Ham, leaving Nuno under intense pressure after just four months in the job.

"I think it was quite okay until we conceded the first goal. In the second half there were too many mistakes with the ball,” Tottenham captain and goalkeeper Lloris told Sky Sports.

"With two or three passes they created chances and they scored two more goals. At points we were too naive in the second half. We expect more. We expect more belief. More pride.

"This is not the first time [we have played this poorly], even at home. We expected more against Chelsea. The next target is Thursday [against Vitesse]. We need to reanalyse and find some good.

"It's not a good moment at all. We concede too much, we don't score enough, we don't create enough. But I want to believe in the club and myself and my team-mates.

"We've only played 10 games in the league, but there's too much up and down. In one game we go through so many emotions. We seem to always go down. Confidence is key also."

Lloris was not surprised by the boos that rained down around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at full-time, though made a call for unity.

"When you're a professional you expect critics. The fans expect more from us, but this is not the moment to give up, this is the moment to stick together,” he said.

"But also we need to find the solution to move on."
