Tottenham turned up the heat on their title rivals by snatching back second place in the Premier League after comfortably dispatching Cardiff City.
Mauricio Pochettino challenged Spurs to take the initiative here and, while they remain six points off the summit, they issued a timely reminder to Manchester City and Liverpool, who meet on Thursday, that they are determined to make life interesting, after bouncing back in style from a shock 3-1 defeat by Wolverhampton Wanderers at Wembley. After the inquest into that defeat Pochettino said his players were not robots but they displayed a professional steel to tee up the coming weeks nicely with this slick performance.
