Harry Kane Chalks Off Fantastic Milestone As Spurs Smash Cardiff

  • Neil Warnock Cardiff City 2018-19

Harry Kane got himself into the record books again as Tottenham Hotspur started 2019 in style outclassing Cardiff City to prevail 3-0 on Tuesday.

The victory took Spurs back above City into second place and within six points of leaders Liverpool.

Pochettino said: "Cardiff are a tough team to play against".

Tottenham were due to move into their new White Hart Lane Stadium ahead of the 2018-19 campaign but construction delays have seen Spurs remain at Wembley.

While Spurs lost 3-1 to Wolves on Saturday, they have won their other three contests over the festive period, most recently beating Cardiff 3-0 with three early goals on Tuesday.

Kane needed just over two minutes to complete his set and Spurs completed the job with goals from Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min.

The England skipper's goal against the Bluebirds meant that he has now scored at least once against all 28 of the Premier League opponents he has faced.


Speaking after the Wolves game, the Tottenham manager said: "We started to play too many long balls and then is was hard to recover the ball and to play more with your heart than your head and we started to expend a lot of energy". So easy for Spurs as Sissoko feeds Kane, who lays the ball off for Son to score from the angle.

"In this country, all the people are going to watch the game, but I will be in a neutral position trying to enjoy the game", said Pochettino. I think it will be hard, of course, and their physicality makes them a very risky team.

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

'It is three points that make us believe a little bit more in our possibility to be in a very good position in the table'.

'Man United, it was two-and-a-half minutes, today one-and-a-half minutes.

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.

"I don't think it was a game too far, I just thought we shot ourselves in the foot", Warnock said. That is what you expect from a player when he signs, to step up and show their quality and in the way he's playing.
