First-half flurry moves Spurs up to second

Premier League - Cardiff City v Tottenham Hotspur

Kane, Eriksen and Son strike in opening 26 minutes as Tottenham Hotspur beat Cardiff 3-0 to go above Man City

Tottenham Hotspur moved to second place in the Premier League table with a 3-0 victory at Cardiff City.

Harry Kane opened the scoring when Sean Morrison's attempted clearance fortuitously went in off the striker's knee in the third minute.

Nine minutes later, Christian Eriksen collected Son Heung-min's centre and found the bottom-left corner of the net. 

Son added Spurs' third with 26 minutes gone, firing across Neil Etheridge and into the same corner from Kane's pass.

Cardiff's best chance of the match fell to Junior Hoilett, but he could only direct his header straight at Hugo Lloris. 

Spurs now have 48 points, one more than third-placed Manchester City who host league leaders Liverpool on Thursday. 

Cardiff stay 16th with 18 points, three points above the relegation zone.
