Mauricio Pochettino praised his Tottenham players after bouncing back from the Wolves defeat with a 3-0 win at Cardiff.
Spurs moved back into second place and, to within six points of Premier League leaders Liverpool, as first-half goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min rewarded their superiority over Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds.
Pochettino says bouncing back quickly was not only crucial to Tottenham’s chances of remaining in the Premier League title race, but also their hopes of winning silverware elsewhere.
“I think it was so important (to win) and build another positive run,” Pochettino said. “It was so important for our confidence, because in three days we are going to start another competition, the FA Cup.
“Then we are going to play the Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea. It was so important to start the new year with a victory, away from home in a very difficult place, against a team like Cardiff who came from beating Leicester.
“They came with massive confidence in the way they played the last game and it was a massive victory for us. It is three points that make us believe a little bit more in our possibility to be in a very good position in the table.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
