It means more than only three points when you play Arsenal, West Ham and Chelsea.
Unlike his counterpart in the West Ham dugout, Mauricio Pochettino does not have any fresh injury concerns to deal with ahead.
After a bad start to the season, West Ham have not conceded in three games and kick-started their season with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield.
That goal had come against the run of play, but Spurs were in complete control within four minutes as Hart saved Alli's close-range effort, only for the ball to magnetise towards Kane, who stroked home.
Since the Premier League era began in 1992-93, this is the first time that Tottenham have opened a campaign among the elite with three successive victories.
Harry Kane scored twice as 10-man Tottenham held off a West Ham comeback Saturday to maintain its ideal away record with a 3-2 victory in the Premier League.
Here's what Bilic said when asked about whether Tottenham are the best team in the league. Tottenham, who had won nine league games in a row before that, had a powerful team and it shouldn't have happened to them.
Unfortunately for those from the east of the City I think you have to fancy Spurs for this one. I respect every single opinion.
"To play in different positions adds more value to the player and that is why we are so happy with him".
"They have patterns, good players and, for me, that makes them one of the best teams - probably the most attractive one", he told reporters. Look what they did to a Watford team that seems pretty good this year.
Bilic has not forgotten previous derby successes however.
"That creates links between them and emotion - and then when you must fight in a competition, there's always a willingness to help more your team-mates and care more for them and care more for the gaffer that pays the bill!" If we analyse the game we were better. They have done it already. You need time to create a good dynamic - not only tactics but outside too.
