Spurs keep top four hopes alive as Soldado strikes

LONDON (Reuters) – Tottenham Hotspur kept alive their hopes of a top four Premier League finish when Roberto Soldado scored the only goal at White Hart Lane to give them a 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Cardiff City on Sunday.

Soldado, who has struggled to justify the 30 million euros ($41.43 million) Spurs paid Valencia for his signature last year, finished off a sizzling counter-attack after 28 minutes to score what proved to be the match-winner and lift them on to 53 points from 28 matches although they stay in fifth place.

Rodgers again dismisses title talk as Liverpool go second

By Mike Collett

(Reuters) – As far as everyone but Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is concerned, the Merseyside club are definite contenders to win the most open Premier League title race for years.

Privately, perhaps, Rodgers may share that view although he was certainly giving nothing away publicly after his team chalked up a fourth straight league success with a 3-0 victory at Southampton on Saturday that put them second behind Chelsea.
