Southampton defender Aaron Martin says everyone at the club is relishing their run of games coming this month.
The Saints are currently sitting top of the Championship, but after the international break they face a run of tough games.
They face trips to Derby, Reading and Crystal Palace as well as visits from West Ham and Middlesbrough this month.
Martin told the club's official website: "We've started off so strong, but we've got a really tough month coming up.
"As long as we keep doing what we are doing and playing the way we are, though, I think they should be worried about us rather than the other way round.
"We have started so well and that's testament to everyone because the coaching staff and the players have all been working so hard to keep ourselves up there, and we want to stay up there until the end."
