Tottenham should play at Wembley for remainder of season, says Neil Warnock

Pochettino, who despite garnering credit for developing young players is yet to win a trophy in his managerial career, says he will be able to fill the large gap that will be left with Son leaving for Asian Cup duty.

Warnock, whose Cardiff lost 3-0 at home to Spurs on Tuesday having suffered defeat at Wembley earlier in the season, said: "The league should enforce they play at Wembley now for the rest of the season".

Cardiff entered the contest in confident mood after four points from festive fixtures at Crystal Palace and Leicester had moved them three clear of the relegation zone.

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. The Bluebirds will go for their second straight win on Tuesday against Spurs.

Spurs have now reclaimed second place, moving back between leaders Liverpool and Manchester City, who face each other on Thursday.

It was the 100th Spurs goal he had been involved in - 45 goals and 55 assists.

Daniel Levy played hardball, nothing new there, and Real were forced to look elsewhere, plumping for Julen Lopetegui... and look how that turned out.

Cardiff: Etheridge 6, Manga 5, Morrison 6, Bamba 6, Cunningham 5, Gunnarsson 5, Murphy 6, Arter 5, Camarasa 5, Reid 4, Paterson 4.

Subs: Peltier, Bennett, Ralls, Smithies, Mendez-Laing, Madine, Hoilett.

Mauricio Pochttino's Spurs were thought to be in with a shout of challenging both for the title but a lowly loss to Wolves last week has put them below City in the table again.

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

Christian Eriksen has scored 19 goals from outside the box in the Premier League; the most of any player in the competition since his debut (September 2013).

Cardiff are about to begin a crucial run in their season as well, with Huddersfield, Newcastle and Southampton three of their next five opponents in the Premier League and two of those three matches coming on the road.

That took the Denmark worldwide to four Premier League goals for the campaign, while he has also set up a further seven.
