Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino was clearly satisfied with his side's performance at home against Bournemouth.
Spurs desperately needed all three points to keep in touch with leaders Leicester City and they responded to perfection to the Foxes' win on Saturday as they eased past the Cherries by 3-0.
"It was a good day at the office," Pochettino is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.
"One week ago in Germany we had a bad day but we were good from the beginning today and I'm very happy with the collective performance.
"It was very important to score early in the game, then we had to show a strong mentality to manage the game. We created a lot of chances and it was very important to win 3-0 and get a clean sheet. Today was one of the best performances of the season.
"The international break has not come at a bad time.
'It gives us time to relax and analyse. Ninety percent of the squad is with the national team. We have seven games ahead and when the players come back from the national teams, we hope it is with a good spirit."
