The Welshman pointed back to the side’s surprise 2-0 victory over Manchester City a fortnight ago as a “massive statement” as to what they can achieve in the race for the title.
“We’ve been guilty of being a bit too open in the past against the bigger teams,” he said.
“We were having a lot more possession and attacking on every occasion. That left us vulnerable to the counter-attack. We were conceding quite a few goals.
“This time we stayed very defensively stable.
“It was important to stay solid, stay compact, frustrate them, stop them playing through the lines, which we did really well. We frustrated them and we got them on the counter-attack. It was a very complete performance.
“It was a massive statement from us.”
