Three quick thoughts from Tottenham's 3-0 Premier League win over Cardiff City in South Wales on Tuesday.

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.

Christian Eriksen, whose contract expires in the summer of 2020, scored his fourth goal in six games when he struck against Cardiff - but Pochettino was unable to shed any light on what is likely to happen with the Dane's future.

Tottenham will be able to watch Thursday's much anticipated showdown between Manchester City and Liverpool with the pressure off, knowing a defeat for City will mean they are still in the title race despite their slip-up against Wolves.

"I don't have news", he said.

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. The north Londoners then doubled their lead in the 12th minute as Kane, Sissoko and Son combined to find Eriksen, who clinically found the bottom corner from the edge of the box. The third came after 26 minutes when Son finished his eighth goal in nine games.

For his part, Warnock suggested that Cardiff, who remain in 16th place three points above the relegation zone, may need to go shopping during the January transfer window.

"We had to play for pride and, all credit to them, they battled well in the second half when it would have been easy to roll over".

"So, of course, I congratulate the players because the effort was fantastic". I think it will be hard, of course, and their physicality makes them a very unsafe team.

"They've made cock-ups now with the timing", Warnock said.

"Man United, it was two-and-a-half minutes, today one-and-a-half minutes".

"I'm very pleased, the one thing I need to say is we suffered without rest between the games and therefore from the players it was magnificent", said the 46-year-old Argentinian. "It was a very tough period for us".
