"I said the game would open up in the second half, and we'd have a chance," Pulis said.

"Then they get the two and, at 3-0, you're staring down the barrel. When we got the first goal, I thought we'd have a squeak.

"Then everything took off, it was amazing. When the second goal went in, it was just a matter of time until we got the third."
