Alan Pardew's side followed up their 2-0 win over Chelsea with an equally impressive 1-0 win at Tottenham on Sunday to move up to ninth.
Midfielder Tiote said: "At the moment we look really strong. We are compact as a team.
"We are just focused on trying to win every game. I don't want to say we want to finish fourth or fifth, it's too early. We just have to focus and try to do everything to win every game."
