Tottenham Hotspur bounced back from a shocking defeat at the hands of Wolves to beat Cardiff City by 3 goals to nil.
The win in the Welsh capital sees them reclaim the second spot for the time being as Manchester City take on Liverpool on Thursday.
Following a second half collapse at the weekend, Spurs made sure they left no chance of another comeback as they scored 3 in the first half an hour to settle the game. In a scintillating display with some smooth counter attacks, one player that stood out was Moussa Sissoko.
The French international, who has regained his confidence and form, put in a tireless shift in what ended up being a routine win for Spurs. He lead the counter attacks with his powerful runs and made a key pass in the build up to the second goal.

His brilliant performance was summed up with a late cross-field ball he played out to Danny Rose.
The inch perfect ball, played in the injury time, was a massive hit among the Spurs fans, who would be hoping for more of these top performances from their midfielder as they look to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title.
