Jermaine Jenas insists Tottenham Hotspur are not getting carried away by their promising start to the Premier League season.
Spurs sit third in the table after the opening nine games and manager Harry Redknapp is keen to mount a sustained challenge for a UEFA Champions League place.
Jenas is enjoying playing under Redknapp, but has warned of the dangers of losing focus over the coming weeks.
"We're a good team, but it's important that we stay focused and keep our feet on the ground because, before you know it, you might have one, two, three bad results and you're out of it," Jenas told Sky Sports News.
"It's a tough, tough league. We've had some very good results, but we need to stay calm, keep enjoying our football and hopefully keep winning our games."
Redknapp is about to celebrate 12 months in charge at White Hart Lane and Jenas has praised the former Portsmouth manager's impact at the club.
He led Spurs to the Carling Cup final and away from relegation last season, and Jenas admits Redknapp has inspired an about-turn in the mindset at the club.
The midfielder added: "I think the gaffer, obviously, has done very well since he came in.
"If you look at his record since he's come in, we've won a number of games and we've improved our away form, which has helped us a lot.
"The whole belief throughout the whole club has changed and we go into games maybe not hoping or thinking about a draw here and a draw there, but believing we can win every game."
