Pochettino demands consistency from title-chasing Spurs

The Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has said that Tottenham should be forced to play their remaining home games this season at Wembley, rather than at their new White Hart Lane stadium, to preserve the integrity of the competition.

And the Spurs boss said he was delighted with the way his players handled their fourth league game in 10 days.

Cardiff, on the other hand, have collected four points from their last two outings to hoist themselves up to 16th place in the Premier League table out of the relegation zone.

Tottenham moved back into second place in the Premier League, six points behind leaders Liverpool, after cruising to a 3-0 win at lowly Cardiff City on Tuesday. The club's five-match winning streak was snapped on Saturday in a 3-1 loss to Wolverhampton.

Spurs were ahead with less than three minutes gone as Cardiff made a complete mess of defending a Kieran Trippier cross and the ball bounced into the net off Kane's shin. After 26 minutes to be 3-0 was fantastic for us and then we dominated the game.

With the job done so early, it was surprising that Pochettino declined to withdraw any players until the 76th minute - especially as his slowness to make substitutions in the 5-0 victory over Bournemouth probably contributed to the fatigue against Wolves.

Their ongoing captivity has been linked to the arrest of Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou , on December 1 in Canada. In December 2009, China executed convicted drug smuggler Akmal Shaikh of the United Kingdom for smuggling 4,030 grams of heroin.

"I think it was so important [to bounce back from the defeat to Wolves]". Over the last few years we have been in this position with Leicester, and then Chelsea the year after.

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.

He still needs to work on his finishing but, given his price tag has weighed heavily on him for much of his time at Spurs, it is interesting to ponder what he would be worth now.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts has lauded Moussa Sissoko's performance against Cardiff on Tuesday and believes the Frenchman is "bossing" it in midfield this season. Man United went on to win 5-1.

He added: "The league should enforce they play at Wembley for the rest of the season".
