Victories over Everton and Aston Villa have planted us right back in the European running after back-to-back defeats in the league and cup at St Mary's.
So how did the lads turn things around? Pounding his chest, the Uruguayan star declared: "It was something inside, in the heart.
"Everyone was hurt and we had to show we weren't as bad as we showed that day.
"Everton was a strange game but we never stopped trying to win it and we deserved to win at Villa. It's all about confidence. Everyone is happy again.
"Two weeks ago after we lost at Southampton we were very bad, out of the FA Cup, Worthington Cup - the worst team in the Premiership.
"Two games later we are back in the thick of it again and everyone is excited about the future.
"We have to be realistic, not think too much about it and be ready, because anything can happen now.
"We have a very important game now against Newcastle, a key game for the season so let's see if we can get the three points and put more pressure on."
Gus Poyet insists our recovery since the FA Cup disaster at Southampton is all 'in the heart'.
