North London outfit Tottenham returned to winning ways when they got the better of Swansea 3-2 at home in the Premier League.
Nacer Chadli put Spurs in the lead at White Hart Lane after just seven minutes, but Ki Sung-yeung restored parity on 19 minutes.
Second-half goals from Ryan Mason and Andros Townsend made it 3-1 to the hosts by the hour mark, but Gylfi Sigurdsson pulled one back in the 89th minute.
Tottenham eventually saw out the rest of the game without any problem, and Pochettino was delighted to see his team bounce back from Sunday’s defeat to Chelsea in the League Cup final at London’s Wembley Stadium.
"It was a very important win,” the Argentine told Tottenham’s official Twitter account. “It was difficult after the final but it was a great performance and I'm happy.
"In the second half we were better and deserved the three points. I'm happy with the effort. Mason's goal was important for him and the team.”
Tottenham were indeed the better team at White Hart Lane this evening and deservedly picked up the three points.
Spurs had 61% of the possession, took 20 shots of which seven were on target, and had six corners.
In contrast, the Swans had the ball just 39% of the time, took 10 shots of which five were on target, and had four corners.
