Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea admitted the best team lost after his side sneaked a late win against London rivals Wasps.
A late Sam Smith try deprived Wasps of a deserved victory as Quins won 11-10 despite struggling to build up any momentum to their game.
Wasps were in total control in the first half but failed to capitalise, leading just 10-3 at the interval when they should have had the match wrapped up.
A relieved O'Shea said: "The best team lost today without any doubt. We didn't play with any shape or form and won't play like that again.
"We gave certain players a break during the LV=Cup period and unfortunately we didn't hit the ground running.
"We didn't hold on to the ball well enough but all credit to the players for displaying mental toughness and hanging in there to sneak a win at the end."
Despite the poor performance, O'Shea was not too despondent.
"We are still in the top four and have Newcastle at home next week," he added.
"Playing conditions will improve and at the end of the season this will be a golden result for us."
Wasps director of rugby Dai Young agreed with O'Shea that his team were the better side.
"Sometimes in sport, you don't get what you deserve, we were in control for the huge majority of the game and I feel very sorry for the players," he said.
"We had lots of positions in the first half but we let too many opportunities slip. The forwards did very well but we lacked composure and were over eager in their 22.
"We gave them the opportunity to sneak it late on as our discipline let us down in the last ten minutes but we are happy with our performance and our bonus point."
