Spurs have made an encouraging start to the campaign as they briefly led the Premier League last weekend before dropping to second, are in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals and are in good shape to qualify for the Europa League knockout stages.
“We have had a solid start to the season, I still think there is a lot to improve on in all aspects of our game," the England captain told Spurs TV.
“There is a long way to go, we are in a solid place at the moment, we are feeling good, but we also know in the Premier League that can turn around if you lose two or three on the bounce.
“The last couple of wins have been important, we perhaps didn't perform as well but we ground out the results.
“We have got players who have won things in the changing room, we have got good experience in the changing room, good leaders in the changing room, and I feel like we are at a place now where if we get it right mentally, we can achieve things, but we are not getting carried away.
“Obviously Jose is a winner at every level, he has come in with that aura about him and he wants to win things here.
“It is just installing that confidence into the team, he is a great man, with great experience, so us as players can only look at that and take confidence from that. We have had a great relationship since he walked through the door."
