Tottenham head coach Nuno Espirito Santo insists he was told the club’s philosophy when he took charge in the summer and is determined to win over supporters.

Spurs have lost three consecutive Premier League games to London rivals Crystal PalaceChelsea and Arsenal after their protracted search for a new manager ended with the appointment of Nuno in June.

They were top of the league after winning their opening three matches 1-0 but rank 20th out of 20 for shots and chances created this season, and have also covered less distance than any other side.

Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) recently requested a meeting with the club’s board to discuss its “short and long-term strategic vision”, but Nuno remains confident performances will improve.

“I’ve been told [the philosophy] and everybody knows,” he told reporters on Wednesday. “It’s football, everybody wants to play good. Everybody wants to play offensively, everybody wants to score. This is what we chase.

“Sometimes it’s not possible but we are aware that this is what we want to do but it takes a building process to achieve it and we are trying.

“The criticism is normal. Everybody knows how this industry works. When you don’t play good, when you don’t perform and results don’t go your way, criticism is something you have to deal with. We understand it and it’s up to us to react and change it.”

Spurs face Slovenian side NS Mura in the Europa Conference League on Thursday, hoping for their first win in normal time since a 1-0 victory over Watford in the Premier League on August 29.

Despite concern from supporters, Nuno insists there is no reason to panic.

“I’m not worried about the judgement. What I’m worried about is how we can play better,” he said.
