Kane adds Cardiff to list of EPL victims

Spurs moved back into second place and, to within six points of Premier League leaders Liverpool, as first-half goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min rewarded their superiority over Neil Warnock's Bluebirds.

The Premier League match between Cardiff and Tottenham will be broadcast on NBCSN.

He soon reached the 100-goal milestone and his goal against Cardiff took him to 122 goals in 171 Premier League appearances.

City welcome Liverpool to the Etihad Stadium on Thursday, and a win for Pep Guardiola's side would work in Tottenham's favour by tightening up matters at the top.

"That is football, we knew it would happen", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said. 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. Harry Kane scores one of his scruffier goals to give Spurs a dream start. After 20 games, Spurs are again third in the table.

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. I think it will be hard, of course, and their physicality makes them a very risky team.

Liverpool and City have been the two best teams in the league this season and it was thought that they would be closer to each other in the table at this point.

Kane drove through the midfield to find Kieran Trippier, and the England captain was in the right place when Cardiff made a hash of the cross and Sean Morrison diverted the ball against his knee for it to trickle past goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

"I'm so happy, very pleased with the performance", said Pochettino. We should have been playing at the new stadium ourselves.

Cardiff entered the contest in confident mood after four points from festive fixtures at Crystal Palace and Leicester had moved them three clear of the relegation zone. It was beaten 5-1 at Manchester United just before Christmas and was also thrashed 5-0 by Man City at home in September.
