Wilson Palacios is confident Tottenham can finish in the top half of the Premier League this season.
The Honduran midfielder has made a bright start to his White Hart Lane career after joining from Wigan in a big-money deal last month.
Spurs remain in a relegation scrap as they are currently 15th in the table and only two points above the drop zone.
However, there are only five separating Tottenham from 10th-placed Fulham and Palacios is looking up rather than down.
The 24-year-old thinks Spurs are too good for their present position and will enjoy a strong finish to the campaign.
"The aim is to get us back into the top half of the table first of all, to get more points and enjoy the rest of the season," he said.
"I know how good Spurs are and the quality of players we have here. I've played against them a few times so I know exactly how good they are.
"Everyone knows the club shouldn't be where they are in the table but now it's up to me and my team-mates to get us up to a better position."
Palacios has been praised by Harry Redknapp since his arrival at the London club and he hopes to repay his new boss.
He added: "When the manager has said positive things about you, it fires you up even more to work hard and back those comments up out on the field."
