Tottenham rewarded for relying on exhausted stars in routine win at Cardiff

Neil Warnock Cardiff City 2018-19

Cardiff stayed three points above the relegation zone with this latest convincing loss to one of the league's heavyweight teams.

Cardiff found it hard to get possession after that, although substitute Junior Hoilett did enliven them after the interval in their search for a first goal against Spurs for 41 years.

City and Liverpool meet in a huge showdown, live on Sky Sports Premier League, with second-placed Spurs able to sit back and relax after their 3-0 win at Cardiff on New Year's Day.

"Us and Everton, we were the two teams who suffered the most difficult fixtures in this period [with four games in 10 days] and of course we congratulate the players because the effort was fantastic - and all the staff because they work so hard to provide all the best tools for the players to perform in the best way".

"That is football, we knew it would happen", said Pochettino.

"I was pleased that we hung in there because it's easy to throw the towel down when you're 3-0 down to a team like this".

Christian Eriksen's Tottenham contract expires after the 2019-20 season, but Mauricio Pochettino is not anxious about the situation.

Eriksen said the victory had eased the pressure on Spurs in terms of the title race.

"Liverpool are on top form at the moment, they're ahead, and deservedly so".

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson is backing Tottenham to make a swift return to winning ways against the promoted side in Wales on New Year's Day.

"The Wolves game was a kick up the bum for us".

Kane completed a full house of scoring at least once against Premier League rivals when he struck the first goal against Cardiff.

Spurs could have had more but Kane, Son and Dele Alli were thwarted as Cardiff put bodies on the line to prevent their goal difference from worsening.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock admitted Tottenham were too good for his side during the first half of the 3-0 defeat on Tuesday.

"I'm able to pass out wide and it's always been a part of my game". I think it will be hard, of course, and their physicality makes them a very unsafe team.

"I don't want to see the table".
