Dele Alli admits confidence has gone from Tottenham's playing group.
Spurs were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday after a 3-0 loss to RB Leipzig in Germany, with the tie finishing 4-0 on aggregate.
Speaking after the game, Alli said: "We can't use excuses, we still have quality on the pitch. We are missing good players but that happens. The players coming in have to step up and we haven't done that today.
"We apologise to the fans, to go out and lose like that, they deserve better.
"We have to fight. We can't be in the position we are in in the league, we can't hide. This hasn't been a good season for us.
"The reality is we are in a bad situation, confidence has gone at the minute."
