Robbie Keane's first goal since returning to Tottenham and two from Aaron Lennon ensured there was no Carling Cup hangover for Harry Redknapp's men as they beat against Middlesbrough 4-0.
Keane opened the scoring, and Roman Pavlyuchenko and Lennon added to the scoreline before the break as Spurs moved closer to mid-table - after starting the match two points above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.
Lennon then added a fourth in the second half at White Hart Lane, building on his performance at Wembley on Sunday when he had the better of Manchester United full-back Patrice Evra.
