Cardiff City vs. Tottenham Hotspur - Football Match Report

Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways with a 3-0 victory against Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium on New Year's Day.

As indicated by statistics provided by Transfermarkt, that goal proved to be momentous for Kane, as Cardiff were the only side he had never previously managed to score against in the Premier League.

The striker netted early in our 3-0 win at Cardiff on New Year's Day to complete the set - 28 out of 28. However, it then backfired against Wolves as his overworked players exhausted and capitulated, conceding three goals in the final 20 minutes as a 1-0 lead turned into a chastening 3-1 defeat.

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.

Spurs never looked back at Cardiff after Kane opened the scoring in the third minute, albeit through a slice of good fortune after Sean Morrison's attempted clearance struck the England captain and flew in.

The game was effectively over in the 26th minute when Son Heung-Min produced a clinical finish with a shot on the turn after being well set-up by Kane.

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

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

"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". "He will go with his national team, but we have players and football is about the squad and surely we will find the solution".

It is amusing, or perhaps alarming, to think that if Tottenham had been offered their money back for the £30 million man in the summer, they would surely have taken it with glee.

"They came with massive confidence in the way they played the last game and it was a massive victory for us - three points that makes us believe a little bit more in our possibility to be in a very good position in the table".

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

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