New Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes his bottom-of-the-table team are good enough to avoid a relegation battle and climb up the league.
Redknapp was in the dugout as his new side beat Bolton 2-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday - their first Premier League win of the season.
"I've taken over clubs before where I looked at it and thought 'how do we get out of this one?'," he said.
"But there is real quality in this group of players here."
The former Portsmouth manager added: "You look through and there are international players.
"You look at the quality and they shouldn't be where they are, but two points in eight games is an amazingly bad start.
"We have to start working as hard as we did today for each other, picking up points, playing as we did - they passed the ball with real quality which I was really impressed with."
I've left Portsmouth with the best team they've probably ever had

Juande Ramos was sacked as Spurs manager late on Saturday, with Redknapp officially confirmed as his successor on Sunday - just hours before they were due to entertain Bolton.
Although Redknapp did not pick the team for Sunday's encounter, he was keen to get involved as quickly as possible.
"I met the players at the hotel today, came in on the coach with them and got in the dressing room with Clive Allen (Tottenham development coach)," he said.
"I can't afford to be up in the stands sitting back and saying 'well if they got beat it was Clive's fault and if they had won it was me who picked the team'.
"Clive picked the team, but I got involved straight away. He did a good job but I like to think I had some influence as well."
Redknapp also admitted he was looking to add "one or two" to his backroom staff and that former Bournemouth manager Kevin Bond, who had a spell under the 61-year-old at Portsmouth, was with him at White Hart Lane.
BBC Sport understands former Spurs midfielder Tim Sherwood could also make a return to the club in a coaching capacity.
