Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways with a 3-0 victory against Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium on New Year's Day.

Tottenham will be able to watch Thursday's much anticipated showdown between Manchester City and Liverpool with the pressure off, knowing a defeat for City will mean they are still in the title race despite their slip-up against Wolves.

Spurs could have had more but Kane, Son and Dele Alli were thwarted as Cardiff put bodies on the line to prevent their goal difference from worsening.

Although goalscorers Eriksen, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min caught the eye in Tuesday's victory, Pochettino singled out Moussa Sissoko for praise.

"I was pleased we didn't just fold in the second half".

And the Spurs boss said he was delighted with the way his players handled their fourth league game in 10 days.

The Gamecocks turned the ball over on their first drive of the game after failing to convert on fourth down and one yard to go. It's clearly something he doesn't want to rehash. "We really don't talk too much about it", Thornhill said.

The goal saw Kane complete the clean sweep of scoring against all 28 Premier League opponents he has faced, and Spurs eased to a sixth win in seven league games as the gulf between the two sides was cruelly exposed. I think it will be hard, of course, and their physicality makes them a very risky team.

'Us and Everton, we were the two teams who suffered the most hard fixtures in that period, ' Pochettino said after Tottenham's fourth game in 10 days.

"So, of course, I congratulate the players because the effort was fantastic".

Neil Warnock will therefore be disappointed and maybe a little concerned by what has happened in his side's past two home matches against Manchester United and Spurs.

Kane drove through the midfield to find Kieran Trippier, and the England captain was in the right place when Cardiff made a hash of the cross and Sean Morrison diverted the ball against his knee for it to trickle past goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

Cardiff's 3-0 defeat against Spurs left them 16th in the Premier League, three points above the relegation places, ahead of their next league fixture against fellow strugglers Huddersfield. That is what you expect from a player when he signs, to step up and show their quality and in the way he's playing.
