Harry Kane has now managed to score against all 28 teams he has faced in the Premier League after his latest goal against Cardiff.

The two Premier League titans clash in monumental game in what's already being billed as a title decider.

Spurs, beaten by Wolves at home on Saturday, took just three minutes to get in front in South Wales through the familiar source of captain Harry Kane.

It's remained a huge talking point over the Christmas and New Year period, particularly as Tottenham moved into second place after the Boxing Day fixtures, further emphasising just what a super job the Argentinian is doing.

"I don't have news", Pochettino told reporters.

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.

Spurs have won their last five Premier League games on New Year's Day to suggest a return to winning ways is likely.

The England striker has now scored 16 goals in his last 12 Premier League away matches against newly-promoted teams.

The game was effectively over in the 26th minute when Son Heung-Min produced a clinical finish with a shot on the turn after being well set-up by Kane.

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.

"I don't care", Pochettino said, when asked about Thursday's game.

Cardiff City is in danger of relegation, now 16th out of 20 teams in the Premier League. 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.

Neil Warnock has the side as well organised as you would expect, with today's match offering the chance for them to record three straight top-flight clean sheets for the first time since 1957.

"I think we are so happy and so pleased". "He will go with his national team, but we have players and football is about the squad and surely we will find the solution".
