Sebastien Bassong has seen Tottenham extend their unbeaten run to ten games in all competitions and wants this form to continue if they harbour any ambitions of a top four finish.
"Starting 2011 with a win is really important for us and we need to keep going like that," the 24 year old said.
"We've had good results in matches against Chelsea, Villa and Newcastle and if we want to be in the top four at the end of the season we have all said we must carry on winning.
"The next game will be really important. We have to win our home games. Fulham will come here for a difficult London derby."
Bassong says the run has given the squad belief they are a top four contender.
"The confidence is the same as last season," said Bassong, who joined Spurs from Newcastle last summer.
"We still believe in ourselves because we have a really good squad and we have lots of character and have quality. We have to carry on keep working hard and then we will make the top four."
