The captain spoke after Sunday's fine 2-0 victory against Manchester City at the Lane.

Aleksandar Kolarov's own goal and Dele Alli's smart finish from Heung-Min Son's pass rewarded a relentless display in front of an energised crowd at the Lane.

Hugo produced big saves from Sergio Aguero and Kelechi Iheanacho when called upon in the second half to maintain his record of not yet conceding a goal from open play in the Premier League this season.

The win also stretched our unbeaten run to a Club-best mark of seven matches unbeaten at the start of a Premier League campaign.

"In football, it’s a lot about belief and we have some strong basics that we are building up now from the beginning of the Mauricio Pochettino era," reflected Hugo.

"I think we’re improving every week, every month. Our team is still young but there is a big appetite here, we are all hungry to get great performances.

"It’s true you need to be consistent in the league but when you get the opportunity to play one of the top teams like City you need to enjoy it and play at your best level, like we did on Sunday.

"It was also important to win before an international break but we must remember that the season is long and we must always be humble."

Skipper of his country, Hugo has now joined up with Moussa Sissoko in the France squad for World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Vincent Janssen's Holland.
