The England striker has netted four goals in his past three outings following his brace in the 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday and is feeling like he is in a very good place on the pitch.
Defoe has scored nine Premier League goals – and 12 in all competitions – under Andre Villas-Boas this term and he is happy to be back doing what he does best.
"When you're scoring goals, you're buzzing. You just can't wait for the next game because you've got that belief," Defoe told Absolute Radio.
"You always feel like you're going to score every game you go in to, because you're scoring goals.
"You know you're going to play, you know you're going to stay on the pitch, so I just stayed focused and took the chances when they came."
