Pochettino demands consistency from title-chasing Spurs

Cardiff vs Tottenham LIVE Latest updates

Harry Kane ended his Cardiff hoodoo as Tottenham stayed in the Premier League title picture with a 3-0 win in the Welsh capital.

Cardiff have lost their last 15 Premier League matches against the "big six" sides, conceding 47 goals across those matches, with 25 of those goals conceded coming in their six defeats this season.

Kane's goal came off his shin, deflecting in a loose ball from a awful touch from Cardiff captain Sean Morrison after Kieran Trippier's cross from the right initially hit the England captain.

"I think it was so important to start the new year with a victory, away from home in a very hard place, against a team like Cardiff who came from beating Leicester".

Though the sight of constant jousting between Tottenham Hotspur's media officer and a reporter at Mauricio Pochettino's recent press conference descended into something resembling comedic tones, there was a serious undercurrent.

Spurs beat Cardiff 3-0 on Tuesday evening to regain some traction after their disappointing home loss to Wolves. So easy for Spurs as Sissoko feeds Kane, who lays the ball off for Son to score from the angle.

The England striker has now scored 16 goals in his last 12 Premier League away matches against newly-promoted teams.




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

'But I will be in a neutral position trying to enjoy the game.

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. "The goals were disappointing but they were too good for us in the first half".

Christian Eriksen has scored 19 goals from outside the box in the Premier League; the most of any player in the competition since his debut (September 2013).

Pochettino, who remains the bookmaker's favourite to get the full-time job at Manchester United, said the overall performance of his team had delighted him after Saturday's damaging 3-1 home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"The energy we showed from the beginning was fantastic to dominate the game".
