Son Heung-min's late victor against Newcastle United lifted Spurs above reigning champions City and into second place in the Premier League. "If you see the [Premier League] table, we are there, a lot can happen".
"Tomorrow, we will try to win the three points and the next the same and then we will see if we can win the Premier League".
"It was a pity because we had some chances in the first-half and the beginning of the second-half we had two clear chances when we hit the post", said Benitez, who bemoaned the fact one error had cost his side.
Despite injuries, no new signings and stadium delays, Spurs still find themselves in contention at the top of the league.
'It's going well so far but we have just got to take our time with it and make sure we get it right. "For me, that's a very good example".
"Because of our belief, how hard we work, our mentality and everything, we are there".

The result allows second-placed Atletico Madrid, playing on Sunday, the chance to close the gap on leaders Barca to three points. All eyes will be on Lionel Messi who has 19 goals in 19 league matches, as well as Coutinho who hit two goals last time out.
"But if we win the league it's not because we were prepared or we built a team to win the Premier League".
It was Tottenham's third straight victory in the league, with the winning goal in each of the games - against Fulham, Watford and now Newcastle - coming in the final minutes.
"It's easy to praise the mentality of the team", Pochettino added.
"We want to touch glory, what we want is touch glory, we aren't here for business or because we want to win money, we start our careers because we want to touch glory", the Argentine added. "In some parts of course we are showing great mentality", Pochettino went on.
"I am always happy with him, he is a very nice guy and he is available always to deliver the job you expect from him", Pochettino said.
"But in the end when that was impossible I think the most important thing now is to treat him [properly] because he's a person and my responsibility is to manage people, not chairs or sofas or furniture".
