Leonardo Jardim could barely contain his delight after seeing his league-leading Monaco beat Caen 3-0 on Sunday.
Following their brilliant midweek Champions League win over Manchester City, Les Monegasques overcame a potential banana skin in Normandy as a Fabinho penalty and a brace from Kylian Mbappe sealed the points with ease.
As a result they now sit six points clear at the top of Ligue 1 ahead of Paris Saint-Germain's clash with Lyon on Sunday night and will head into the upcoming international break full of confidence.
Jardim was understandably delighted with his side's performance, insisting that they were good value for their victory against a decent opposition.
The Portuguese said: "I think we played a very serious game against a good team. They are well organised, with very tough players.
“But I think Monaco was stronger and tried to win from the start. I think it's a deserved victory."
