Spurs back up to second after easy win in Cardiff

Cardiff mascots

Tottenham surrendered the chance to establish themselves as Liverpool FC's closest rivals in the Premier League title race after having scored 11 times in two games.

That took the Denmark worldwide to four Premier League goals for the campaign, while he has also set up a further seven.

Cardiff appear to be a more confident side now, though, and that will pose Tottenham with a different test.

Tottenham bounced back from their home defeat to Wolves in style as they triumphed 3-0 at Cardiff and moved back above reigning champions Manchester City into second place in the Premier League table, six points behind leaders Liverpool. Harry Kane scored his 13th goal of the season against Wolves, giving him a share of the Premier League lead. It meant that five of Spurs' front six players - Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane - started for the fourth match in a row, with all of those games taking place in the space of just 10 days.

Eriksen received a pass from Son, took a touch, and sent a precise shot from the edge of the area just inside the post to make it 2-0 in the 12th minute.

"I don't care", Pochettino said, when asked about Thursday's game.

Daniel Levy played hardball, nothing new there, and Real were forced to look elsewhere, plumping for Julen Lopetegui... and look how that turned out.

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

"They've made cock-ups now with the timing", Warnock said.

"We had to play for pride and, all credit to them, they battled well in the second half when it would have been easy to roll over".

Warnock's side now sit 16th in the table, three points clear of the relegation zone, following Tuesday's home loss to Spurs but had also tasted defeat to the London outfit at Wembley earlier in the year.

"I'm so happy, very pleased with the performance", said Pochettino.

'Man United, it was two-and-a-half minutes, today one-and-a-half minutes. "I think we started the game well, we were so clinical from the beginning".
