Harry Kane scores early as Tottenham cruise past Cardiff

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.

Kane had failed to breach Cardiff's defence in his three previous matches against the Welsh club and only did so this time because of a touch of fortune.

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.

The result means Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side sit a point ahead of Manchester City and six behind Liverpool, who both meet each other on Thursday night.

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

It was the flawless way for Mauricio Pochettino's side to bounce back after their disappointing 3-1 defeat to Wolves at Wembley on Satudray.

Eriksen received a pass from Son, took a touch, and sent a precise shot from the edge of the area just inside the post to make it 2-0 in the 12th minute.

That same day, Berreth's phone pinged from Gooding, Idaho, which is 700 miles away from her home, according to East Idaho News . Surveillance video showed the 29-year-old entering the store with what appears to be her 1-year-old daughter in a baby carrier.

While it will be relatively easy for Warnock to shrug off these losses to Champions League sides, he will hope that his players' confidence isn't affected when they are next at home, especially as they will be hosting relegation rivals Huddersfield.

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

That sturdy defence saw them return to Wales with four points from the trips to Crystal Palace and Leicester, where the Bluebirds secured a 1-0 win at the same time as Tottenham's five-match winning run came to a crushing halt. We should have been playing at the new stadium ourselves. "I think we started the game well, we were so clinical from the beginning".

'So, of course, I congratulate the players because the effort was fantastic.

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 was pleased we didn't just fold in the second half'.

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