Tottenham Hotspur put their horrid end to 2018 behind them this evening by slotting three home past struggling Cardiff.
Spurs dented their title hopes last time out, conceding three late goals to Wolves to see their win snatched away at home.
However, goals from Kane, Eriksen and Son secured victory for the Lilywhites this evening.
Here are five things we learned from the win:
It’s going to be a good 2019
No matter what happens this season, it’s going to be one hell of a 2019 for Spurs. The team have a new stadium on the way, and are absolutely flying in every competition they play in. Premier league, Champions League, a semi-final of the League Cup, and the FA Cup this Friday. There is so much for Spurs fans to look forward to.
No Wolves nerves
Tottenham could have easily come into this fixture with some early 2019 jitters today after they threw away three points against Wolves at the weekend. More dropped points would have really put the pressure on this Spurs side, but they managed to regain their confidence and secured the win without needing to leave second gear.
Sharing the love
In three of the last four matches, Tottenham have shared the goal scoring across their forward players. Against Everton, Kane, Son, Alli, and Eriksen all scored, with Lucas Moura getting in on the act against Bournemouth. Tonight it was the familiar trio of Kane, Sonny, and Eriksen again, showing that Spurs are no longer reliant on one man.
Sonny don’t leave
As the date inches closer, Spurs fans will be cursing the fact that Heung Min Son has to leave for international duty this month. Sonny leaves after the Man United game in order to compete in the Asia Cup with South Korea, missing some pivotal matches for Tottenham, including a semi-final leg.
Eriksen needs to sign
Eriksen absolutely ran the show today, and topped it all off with a sublime and cheeky finish into the bottom corner. There are only a handful of players in the world like him, and Spurs should be doing everything in their power to tie him down long term.
