EPL: Kane keeps Tottenham in title hunt with Cardiff romp

EPL: Kane keeps Tottenham in title hunt with Cardiff romp

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.

Mauricio Pochettino claimed he does not care about the outcome of the big Manchester City-Liverpool showdown after Tottenham remained firmly in the Premier League title picture with a comprehensive victory at Cardiff.

After Kane launched an attack, surging from deep, Kieran Trippier crossed and the England forward had a simple tap-in when the ball ricocheted off Cardiff defender Sean Morrison.

"Us and Everton, we were the two teams who suffered the most hard fixtures in that period", Pochettino added. He soon reached the 100-goal milestone and his goal against Cardiff took him to 122 goals in 171 Premier League appearances.

Spurs made it 2-0 after just 12 minutes with a classy goal from Eriksen. Spurs lost 3-1 to Wolves over the weekend, snapping a five-game winning streak. After 26 minutes to be 3-0 was fantastic for us and then we dominated the game. "We were playing for pride in the end". If Liverpool loses to City, Spurs will be back in it.




With so little to do for the remainder of the 90 minutes, Mauricio Pochettino can only hope that the Dane's thoughts turned instead to plans to sign a new deal at the club. In this country all the people are going to watch the game, but I will be in a neutral position trying to enjoy the game.

Four points in three games over a hard period is good really. It was beaten 5-1 at Manchester United just before Christmas and was also thrashed 5-0 by Man City at home in September.

They toyed with Cardiff at times, and the third goal killed the game, with the "Ole" chants going up from the visiting fans after half an hour. "All the planning goes out of the window", he told the BBC.

"When we start off like that, we shoot ourselves in the foot".

"From the beginning today we showed massive energy and I think that is the team we want, and expect, to see to get a good performance on the pitch".
