We followed a narrow loss at Manchester United on opening day with a 2-2 draw against Stoke at the Lane on Saturday.
However, we dominated for the first hour against the Potters and led 2-0 only for the visitors to haul us back late on.
Leicester are next on Saturday and Mauricio declared: “We’re not far away.”
“We only have one point but we deserve four or six,” he continued.
“We’ve played two games against Manchester United and Stoke City and we’ve played well, we’ve just made mistakes that we need to fix.
“The players' attitude was great, fantastic this week. We have to continue in this way and focus on working hard.”
