Mauricio Pochettino: Spurs win at Cardiff gives us title belief

Harry Kane scored against Wolves but he is yet to get a goal against Cardiff

Harry Kane scored against Wolves but he is yet to get a goal against Cardiff

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

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

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 don't have news", the coach said.

Spurs reignited their Premier League title efforts following their surprise defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

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. Harry Kane scored his 13th goal of the season against Wolves, giving him a share of the Premier League lead.

Kane then played in Son, who found the corner with an angled shot in the 26th minute for his eighth goal in his past eight starts.

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

"At Cardiff, they won against Leicester (on Saturday), Leicester after two fantastic victories against Chelsea and Manchester City, and Cardiff sure is going to have all the confidence, so it's going to be a tough game".

"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".

'We wanted to put them under pressure after their (Wolves) result and really it was a stroll. We should have been playing at the new stadium ourselves.

Neil Warnock has the side as well organised as you would expect, with today's match offering the chance for them to record three straight top-flight clean sheets for the first time since 1957.

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.

"I was very pleased with the performance and we were so clinical from the beginning".
