But the Foxes playmaker says his side must continue to produce the goods on the pitch, rather than just be a side people talk about.
Drinkwater was outstanding in Sunday’s 3-1 win over Hull City at King Power Stadium – City’s fourth home win out of four this term.
And he felt it was a deserved victory for a side beginning to find its rhythm.
“As a team we did well. We got off to a good start, which set the tempo for the rest of the game and put them on the back foot immediately,” he said.
“They created a couple of chances to force us back early in the second half, but we controlled the game for long spells and fully deserved the win.
“We’re good enough to beat any team in this league, we know that, but we have to turn up and produce on the day, which we did on Sunday.”
Drinkwater, who joined the Club from Manchester United in January, has started every one of City’s seven league games so far this term, clearly benefiting from consistent selection in the side.
The 22-year-old midfielder has become an increasingly influential figure in Nigel Pearson’s side, culminating in a fine display in the win over the Tigers.
“The more I play, the more I feel the quality will come through,” Drinkwater said.
“I want to play as much as I can and hopefully that can carry on.”
