Mauricio Pochettino: Spurs win at Cardiff gives us title belief

Cardiff 0-3 Tottenham latest score: LIVE updates as Eriksen, Kane and Son fire early goals | Daily Star

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino praised the way his side seized control of the game early.

Mauricio Pochettino claimed he does not care about the outcome of the big Manchester City-Liverpool showdown after Tottenham remained firmly in the Premier League title picture with a comprehensive victory at Cardiff.

"Us and Everton, we were the two teams who suffered the most hard fixtures in that period", Pochettino added.

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.

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

Spurs made it 2-0 after just 12 minutes with a classy goal from Eriksen. And it was 3-0 in the 26th minute as Kane helped Sissoko's pass on to Son, who fired across Neil Etheridge. Son has only one Premier League game left - against Manchester United on January 13 - before he leaves to play for South Korea in the Asian Cup.

"With the way we're playing this year we have people running in behind and I'm dropping deeper", Kane said.

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. "Of course I will watch it, it will be an unbelievable game and I enjoy football".

"I think it was a massive victory, a massive three points to make us believe that little more, in our possibility to be in a very good position in the table", Pochettino said. Man United went on to win 5-1. Even with a new stadium to move into and Manchester United casting admiring glances at their manager, Eriksen's long-term future is right up there with the most important tasks on the club's to-do list in 2019.

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.

"From the beginning today we showed massive energy and I think that is the team we want, and expect, to see to get a good performance on the pitch".
