Mauricio Pochettino and his men will be eagerly awaiting the result of the clash between Liverpool and Manchester City at the Etihad on Thursday after moving back into the second spot following their 3-0 win over Cardiff City yesterday.
The away team certainly didn’t take much time to get the engines firing at Cardiff and were already 3 goals up against Neil Warnock’s side even before the 30-minute mark.
Harry Kane led from the front once again and his goal in the 3rd minute gave him the distinction of having now scored 5 times on New Year’s Day, a feat which has achieved previously only by Premier League greats Andrew Cole and Steven Gerrard.
Following the match, Pochettino admitted how Kane is aware of the stats, which just shows how focused and committed the Englishman is on the game.
But even with the statistics aside, just one look at how the striker goes about his business on the pitch is sure to dispel any doubts about his work rate and ability with the front man often going to extreme measures to help out defensively.
Fans were treated to such an incident yesterday as well as an absolutely enraged Harry Kane chased the ball around like a madman after having lost the ball to a Cardiff player a few moments earlier.
The 25-year-old was so focused on retrieving the ball that he even accidentally clashed into Christian Eriksen and grounded the poor Dane.
