Many Tottenham fans will remember the feeling after that 4-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace or the hard-fought victory with ten men against Southampton.
Many had labelled those wins as turning points in Tottenham’s season, providing a platform to put an end to their woeful run of form.
However, on both occasions, Spurs slipped back into their old ways and old errors, with losses coming against Brighton, Leicester, Colchester, and Bayern Munich.
While Tottenham cruised to an impressive and simple 5-0 win in the Champions League last night, the real test of their progress will come this weekend.
The Lilywhites face a trip to Anfield to play an unbeaten Liverpool side who currently sit at the top of the tree in the Premier League.
Harry Kane has insisted that the win over Red Star Belgrade was just what the team needed, but is adamant that it cannot stop here if they want to catch up to the league leaders.
Kane said (Sky Sports): “It’s exactly what we needed. It was a great performance with a lot of energy, plenty of goals and a clean sheet.
“It was almost the perfect night. It can’t stop here, though, it was a game we were expected to win.
“We have a very tough game on Sunday and hopefully we can take this momentum into that.
“Of course, we know in the Premier League we are far behind and have a lot of catching up to do.
“Sunday will be a tough game. They have started the season very well so we have to make sure we put in a performance similar to Tuesday.
“Any top game in any top competition there are fine margins between winning and losing and we probably haven’t had the rub of the green this season for one reason or another.
“But that is part of the game, we have to overcome that. Performances like this will definitely help but it is about the next one.”
"We have a very tough game on Sunday and hopefully we can take this momentum into that."
