Peter Crouch feels Tottenham's hammering of Wigan underlines their credentials as genuine top-four challengers.
Spurs have never finished in the top four since the Premier League formed in 1992.
Now there is a real belief in North London that Spurs can break into the top four, which also delivers a prized place in the UEFA Champions League.
And Crouch feels that Spurs' astonishing 9-1 win over Wigan is a signal that the club are ready to join the top table of English football.
"If you can't take confidence from a game like that, then I don't know where you can, it's the type of match everyone wants to play in," he said.
"As for the top four we just have to keep plugging away. We all believe there is enough ability to get in there, but we don't want to talk too much, we want to do that talking on the pitch.
"We have made a bit of a statement with that result but we have to keep going along with all the other games and see.
"People will look and that result and say 'oh my God' Spurs are flying, people are going to take notice, but the objective is always to get three points.
"Our football is exciting to watch. The fans who pay their money should be excited by what's happening.
"The way Spurs pass the ball, scoring, movement it's all top class. All round we can take a lot of heart from that but we must remember it's (Wigan game) only one game but if we play like that again, it will be great.
"We will keep doing what we have been doing and not worry about other teams too much."
