He told reporters: "I've made the point that we haven't done anything yet. People were trying to pat us on the back for getting to 40 points, but that was never the aim this year.
"So we haven't achieved anything and we haven't got the job done yet. It's about making sure we maintain what we've done in recent weeks and with four games to go let's hope we can keep this momentum going.
"Newcastle are in our sights now, it was important to take three points off them and I would suggest our momentum is better than theirs so who knows? We might catch them."
Stoke are 10th in the Premier League with 43 points from 34 games.
