Dele Alli hopes Tottenham can remain under the radar in the Premier League title race even after Wednesday's fine 2-0 victory against leaders Chelsea.
The England international scored both goals in the White Hart Lane clash as the Blues' 13-match winning run was brought to an end.
The result lifts Spurs up to third in the table but Chelsea still lead the standings by five points from second-placed Liverpool.
"This was a massive game. I don't think there's any hiding how big this game was for Tottenham, for the club and for the fans as well," said Alli.
"There were a lot of things that went into it and you saw that from the performance of the boys. We fought from the first whistle to the last and it was a deserved win.
"It's a big statement for us but we're happy to stay under the radar and take each game as it comes. We did that last season."
Meanwhile, Eric Dier believes Spurs can take confidence from the victory and launch a title challenge in the second half of the season.
Last term Mauricio Pochettino's side were Leicester City's main challengers for the title before fading in the last few weeks and eventually finishing third, while they can be backed at 50/1 to win the 2016/17 title.
Dier said: "To stop their winning streak, that was nice, and at the same time to close the gap on them.
"There are bigger things in our minds than just stopping them though. We want to do well ourselves and that was a big statement from us. Hopefully we can go even further."
Spurs turn their focus to the FA Cup this weekend and their third round encounter with Aston Villa. They can be backed at 10/1 to beat the Championship side 3-1 while Alli is 6/4 to score at any time in the match. The odds on Spurs winning Sunday's game to nil are 6/5.
