Cardiff City vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

"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". Andrew Cole scored against 38 of 40 teams he faced and Alan Shearer 37 of his 39. That list is topped by all-time great Jimmy Greaves (266) followed by Bobby Smith (208) and Martin Chivers (174). In-form Son was the next to find the net in the 26th minute, finishing well from a tight angle - the 11th goal Son has been involved in his last eight league starts.

"I don't have news", the coach said.

Kane has a lethal record against every side he has played against and he now has the best strike rate of any player to have scored against 25 or more teams in the Premier League.

While it will be relatively easy for Warnock to shrug off these losses to Champions League sides, he will hope that his players' confidence isn't affected when they are next at home, especially as they will be hosting relegation rivals Huddersfield.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said that early goal was a heavy blow: "When we start off like that we shoot ourselves in the foot".

Hoilett brought a first save out of Hugo Lloris when Spurs allowed Paterson's cross to bounce in the box and he climbed above Trippier at the back post.

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

'So, of course, I congratulate the players because the effort was fantastic. "The goals were disappointing but they were too good for us in the first half".

That sturdy defence saw them return to Wales with four points from the trips to Crystal Palace and Leicester, where the Bluebirds secured a 1-0 win at the same time as Tottenham's five-match winning run came to a crushing halt.

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.

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.
