Tottenham defender Ledley King says they have not given hope of mounting a title challenge.
Spurs made it seven victories in eight matches with Sunday's 3-1 win over Fulham and are lying fifth in the Barclays Premier League table.
Tottenham trail leaders Manchester City by nine points and second-placed Manchester United by four, although the White Hart Lane side have a game in hand on both teams.
But King said: "I hope we can become the biggest challenger to the Manchester teams. We're still learning, we're still taking one game at a time, but at the moment we feel we can win every game we go into."
King believes Spurs' ability to grind out results when they do not play well is the key to them challenging the leaders.
"We didn't play well against Fulham in the second half and we got lucky at times, our goalkeeper Brad Friedel had to pull off a few good saves for us," he added. "But when that's happening you have to dig deep, and we did that.
"This is a different team. We're managing to grind out results. We've got players that are reaching ages now when they understand the game a bit more, and what's expected of them."
