Luka Modric says Tottenham are full of confidence ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to The Hawthorns, as the club look to extend their unbeaten run to ten games with a positive result against West Brom.

Harry Redknapp's side have won eight of their last nine league games, picking up 25 out of a possible 27 points since their 5-1 defeat against Manchester City in August.

A 2-0 win over Aston Villa at White Hart Lane on Monday lifted Spurs into third in the table, prompting some to label Redknapp's men as genuine title contenders.

"It was a very important game for us because it was the first game after the international break," reflected Modric. "We were away from each other for a long time and it was important to win.

"Villa have good players, international players with lots of experience, but we showed how much quality we have."

Tottenham endured a slow start to the season, falling to heavy defeats at the hands of both Manchester United and neighbours City, but have since demonstrated their title credentials with a remarkable turnaround in form, and Modric is hoping his teammates can continue their impressive run tomorrow.

"We're up to third place and there are hard games coming up," he added. "We need to keep going and just keep up this momentum.

"We're playing well, we're fighting for each other and we need to keep going. We are full of confidence - we've won eight games out of nine and that is fantastic form in the Premier League."
