Tottenham Hotspur overcame Cardiff 3-0 at Cardiff City stadium courtesy of first-half strikes from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, and Heung-Min Son. Tottenham started the game off on the front foot, taking the game to the hosts and found themselves three goals up before the half-hour mark.
Although, Spurs missed several opportunities to add to the scoreline in the second half, the last hour of the game resembled a training session as Tottenham were just playing keep ball.
The performance and the result from the Lillywhites was much needed following a slip up to Wolves at Wembley last week. Spurs went down 3-1 to the Premier League newcomers after being talked up as potential title challengers leading up to the game.
The dominance Tottenham enjoyed at Cardiff certainly went a long way in assuaging fans fears by proving that the result against Wolves was just a minor blip. Tottenham legend Ossie Ardiles took to Twitter to congratulate Pochettino and the boys after the win.
Here’s what the former Tottenham midfielder and manager tweeted.
After the "flip" vs Wolves it was crucial to bounce back to winning ways. This is what We did today, winning very comfortably. Big congratulations to Mauricio and the boys @SpursOfficial . Great way to start this year as well. Happy New Year everyone. COYS
