Gylfi Sigurdsson says Tottenham must not go looking for excuses after a run of defeats.
Sigurdsson felt fatigue should not just be used to explain why Spurs failed to deliver the required performance against Fulham.
"I don't want to be making excuses, but the 120 minutes probably played a bit of a part from Thursday night and also the travelling, but we could have played better even if we were tired," he said.
"It could have been a factor, but we have to make sure we are fresh and ready for the next game.
"The lads can pick themselves up. We have got the determination to get into the Champions League.
"We showed at Arsenal at home that we can beat anyone here so there will be a good few games coming up and hopefully we can get a few points."
