Defoe has been in remarkable form for the Lilywhites this season and is currently the club's top scorer this season with 12 goals to his name.
Spurs have managed to pick themselves up since being demolished 5-2 by arch-rivals Arsenal three weeks ago; the Lilywhites are currently fourth in the league table and are just a point away from securing qualification into the knockout stages of the Europa League competition.
However, with Greek outfit Panathinaikos standing in their way, Spurs cannot take anything for granted when the they clash in their final Europa League Group J game on Thursday, although Defoe believes that his side will be able to progress to the next stage, while also expressing his belief that the Lilywhites can go all the way in the competition.
"We want to get through to the knockout stage of the competition and as we've said all along, we want to do something special this season," Defoe was quoted as saying by the Spurs official website.
"The European nights are special and there is so much history here.
"We always have fantastic support and that helps the lads to perform.
"Things are going well at the moment and we've just got to keep it going."
Defoe also praised his side for coming through a tricky run of fixtures which saw them pick up wins at Liverpool, Fulham and West Ham.
"It's been an amazing week," Defoe gushed.
"If you look at the fixtures as well, they were all tough games.
"To win at Craven Cottage having beaten Liverpool in the week, it's fantastic."
Spurs will take on Everton in their next Premier League fixture.
