EPL: Kane keeps Tottenham in title hunt with Cardiff romp

Pochettino praises his 'clinical' side after perfect response to Wolves defeat

"I think we started the game well, we were so clinical from the beginning".

Pochettino is not anxious however over whether one of his star men is set to exit the club before they move into their new stadium, stating that a lack of information is more promising than anything else.

"It was so important for our confidence, because in three days we are going to start another competition, the FA Cup".

Klopp's men's seven-point gap at the turn of the new year has left fans and pundits alike wondering if Liverpool can win their first league title in 29 years.

With the win, Spurs climbed above Manchester City to second place in the league table and are now six points behind Liverpool, having played a game more than the Reds.

"Us and Everton, we were the two teams who suffered the most hard fixtures in that period", Pochettino said after Spurs had returned a nine-point haul from their four festive games.

After 20 games, Spurs are again third in the table.

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

Christian Eriksen then made it 2-0 for Spurs nine minutes later with a clever finish from the edge of the box, although Warnock will be disappointed with the way his defenders backed off and gave the Dane space to wriggle and shoot home. "It was a very tough period for us".

Many people wrote off promoted Cardiff as relegation certainties before a ball had been kicked, yet they enter 2019 three points clear of the drop zone in 16th place.

Boss Warnock was dismayed that no action was taken against Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko for a first-half challenge, and he was just as unhappy with the sloppy nature of Cardiff's early play.

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.

Cardiff found it hard to get possession after that, although substitute Junior Hoilett did enliven them after the interval in their search for a first goal against Spurs for 41 years.

"We just have to concentrate on ourselves and winning games is all we can do".
