Michael Owen is tipping Tottenham Hotspur to make an immediate return to winning ways against Cardiff City on Tuesday evening.

Spurs had the chance to win their sixth successive Premier League game last weekend but Tottenham suffered a surprise 3-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Wembley on Saturday.

Harry Kane broke the deadlock with a stunning strike in the first half before Wolves scored three times in 18 minutes thanks to goals from Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa.

Tottenham were relegated to third place in the Premier League table after defending champions Manchester City were 3-1 winners against Southampton at St Mary’s on Sunday.

The Lilywhites can make a swift return to winning ways in Wales on New Year’s Day when Tottenham make the trip to Cardiff in the Premier League.

Tottenham won the last four Premier League meetings with Cardiff to make Mauricio Pochettino’s men firm favourite to secure three points.

In fact, Neil Warnock’s side haven’t scored in their last four games against the London side.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Tottenham to beat Cardiff on New Year’s Day.

“A great win for Cardiff at the King Power Stadium last weekend, but Spurs are another side who I feel will bounce back having conceded three late goals and all three points to Wolves at Wembley on Saturday,” Owen told BetVictor.

Kane has netted 13 of the north London side’s 43 goals in the Premier League this season.

Spurs have scored in every away game in the Premier League this season.
