Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino said his team needs to “find a way to be consistent” if they want to be “contenders” in the Premier League after strolling to a comprehensive win at Cardiff City to climb back up to second place in the table.
Spurs suffered a shock 3-1 home defeat by Wolves on Saturday but ruthlessly exposed Cardiff’s flimsy defence with three goals before half-time to win in south Wales.
Harry Kane bundled in a fortuitous early opener in the third minute and Christian Eriksen nestled a fine strike into the bottom corner nine minutes later.
Son Heung-min added a third in the 26th minute and, from that point, the untroubled visitors seemed to ease off a little.
Cardiff at least registered their first efforts on target in a low-key second half but the damage had already been done and they remain 16th in the table, three points clear of the relegation zone.
By contrast, a sixth victory from seven league matches closes the gap between Spurs and leaders Liverpool to six points, with the Reds away at third-placed Manchester City on Thursday.
And although the home side were barely in this contest, such a handsome margin of victory and convincing performance was timely for Tottenham after their defeat to Wolves.
“We were so relaxed and kept calm, it was so important. We showed Wolves was just an accident,” Pochettino said.
“It’s a crazy fixture (list) – it’s normal that in some games we can drop our mental energy.
“The most important thing is to find a way to be consistent if we want to be a contender. We need to believe more in us. We are in a process of doing fantastic things.”
