Gareth Bale and Scott Parker believe Tottenham can go from strength to strength this season after beating Queens Park Rangers 3-1 at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Bale scored a goal in each half and Rafael van der Vaart also found the target to equal the club record of scoring in five successive Premier League games.
Jay Bothroyd pulled one back for QPR in the second half but Tottenham were in commanding form and move up to fifth in the table.
Bale believes Tottenham's confidence is growing, telling Sky Sports: "It's just good to get goals and the three points that lifts us into the top six.
"It was a great team performance today."
Bale scored his second goal, a superb strike from the edge of the box, to steady the home fans' nerves in the 72nd minute.
"They were just starting to come on top and putting a bit of pressure on us and it was a very important goal," he said.
"The confidence is growing. We've been playing well and concentrating on our own football. Scoring goals is part of our game and we've been doing that."
Man-of-the-match Parker is backing Tottenham to do well this term as they continue to string good performances together.
"I think they came out in the second half and put us under a bit of pressure but overall we fully deserved the win," Parker said.
"We played some good football.
"I'm enjoying it immensely and playing alongside players like Gareth and winning games is nice as well.
"We can go places this year if we believe in ourselves and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season."
