Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez is urging his team-mates to carry their form against Real Madrid into Sunday's match against Liverpool.
The 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu in the Champions League extended Spurs' unbeaten run to 10 matches in all competitions and Sanchez believes it is vital to keep the momentum going with games against West Ham in the Carabao Cup, Manchester United in the league and the return fixture with Real Madrid all coming up in quick succession.
"This game against Liverpool [live on Sky Sports] is very special because both teams have big players who can win games," Sanchez said.
"Facing Liverpool will be hard but we will look to win the game because we have the mentality to keep up the performance from Tuesday.
"The most important thing is our mentality and then it is to hope we can play the next game in the same way we did the last one.
"But we also need to look to the future as after Liverpool we have West Ham, Manchester United and Real Madrid again."
Sanchez was one of Tottenham's star performers against Real Madrid and he is now tasked with restricting Liverpool who scored seven against Maribor in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The Colombian is unfazed by the prospect but admits Tottenham have to keep improving at Wembley where they have picked up only five points out of a possible 12 so far in the league.
He added: "We've tried to pick up as many points as possible at Wembley - unfortunately, that hasn't quite happened for us.
"We won there in the Champions League and we won there in the League Cup but we've just picked up one win in the league in our new home.
"Sure, it's important not to drop points in the league and that's why we are currently battling it out at the top."
