Paulinho's injury time goal gives Tottenham Hotspur win at Cardiff City

Cardiff City Stadium

Paulinho scored a last ditch winner for Spurs in a 1-0 win at Cardiff City Stadium.

Tottenham have won it at the death against Cardiff City in a one sided affair at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Tottenham went into the game knowing they had to win to stay in touch with local rivals Arsenal - after The Gunners beat Stoke City 3-1 at The Emirates.

And for 90 minutes they punished Cardiff City who stayed resolute in defence. Chances came and went for Spurs, with a total of 29 attempts at goal in a game where they also had 63% of possession.

But Cardiff were dogged in defence and appeared to be holding out for an unlikely point when Brazilian midfielder Paulinho spoiled the party with a right foot finish in the final minute of injury time.
