Kane prodded Cardiff City into a sloppy concession within 150 seconds of kick off, with a Sean Morrison clearance bounding off Kane’s shin and into the goal.
The Bluebirds answered well… for about 10 minutes. Eriksen scored a classy goal as the clock struck 12, taking a Son pass and setting for the far post before slotting inside the near one. Brilliance.
Son made it 3-0 in the 26th minute, sculpting a Kane assist past the diving paw of Etheridge.
The Cardiff keeper would deny Son a chance at 4-0 in the 66th minute, but neither goalkeeper was under considerable duress in the second half.
