After a run of four defeats in five games, Antonio Conte said that Spurs will have to make an assessment on his position at the club.

They remain seven points off the top four despite being beaten by a single goal at Burnley on Wednesday.

The Italian said after the match that it was a difficult night. We lost four games in the last five games. It means there will be an assessment about the club, about me, because I think it is very frustrating to lose four out of five.

Premier League top half 23/2

For sure the situation is clear. I am sorry for the fans, I think they don't deserve this. When you lose four out of five, the club have to make an assessment, speak together, and understand which is the best solution.

In this situation, the players are the same in this club and the result doesn't change.

I repeat, I am too honest to accept this type of situation, and for sure we will make an assessment with the club, because I repeat, it is not right, it is not right, it is not good for everybody to continue to lose. It is not good for anyone.

We have lost four in the last five games. This is reality. Not the performance. Nobody deserves this situation, we lost four of the last five.

I came in to try to improve the situation but I don't know. I am not good to improve it. It is very frustrating. Trying to get out the best players and working hard. Too honest to keep my eyes open.

'I am not helping the club'

Though Spurs are only three points from fifth place with games in hand on a number of sides around them, Conte said their form was closer to that of a side fighting for their lives.

On Saturday we play another game at Elland Road, it is the time to see the situation and make an assessment, really frustrated, not used to seeing these situations. I am trying to do everything but the situation is not changing.

In the last five games, we are playing like we are in danger, maybe there is something wrong. I want to take responsibility if I have that, I want to help Spurs from the first day I arrived. To get my salary. At this moment, it is not right.

It's not important to speak about mistakes in this moment. We lost four out of the last five. If we continue this way, we will have to fight for the bottom of the league.

I repeat, it would be important for everyone to understand the situation, because for sure you have to make assessment of the club first of all, and I am available to the club for every decision.

I come here to help the club, but in this moment it is very difficult, because I am not helping the club, and for me it is very frustrating.

'I am doing a lot, but it is not enough'

The win away to Manchester City came four days after the defeat at Turf Moor.

The 52 year old said that it was very frustrating because they were working very hard and his messages were not getting through.

When you see that you lose four games in a row, it makes you frustrated. I don't deserve and we don't deserve this, but it is the reality.

I repeat, I don't like this situation. We have lost four times in the last five games, but we are trying to change.

I am available for every decision for the club and to help the club.

I am doing a lot for the club, but it is not enough. I think now is the right time to make an evaluation for the club.

He said that he had to speak with the club about his personal situation.

It is not normal for Spurs to lose four out of five. It is not normal to have a conversation with the club and to find the best solution.

The situation is not good.
