Warnock left to rue sloppy Cardiff display
Neil Warnock was unhappy with the way his Cardiff side gifted Tottenham all three points in a 3-0 defeat yesterday.
Goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min had Tottenham 3-0 up within 20 minutes, to leave Warnock far from happy.
Cardiff remain three points above the relegation zone, with heavy home defeats against Manchester United and Tottenham bookending the four points picked up in away games at Crystal Palace and Leicester.
Boss Warnock was dismayed that no action was taken against Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko for a first-half challenge, and he was just as unhappy with the sloppy nature of Cardiff's early play.
"I don't think it was a game too far, I just thought we shot ourselves in the foot," Warnock said. "Man United, it was two-and-a-half minutes, today one-and-a-half minutes.
"You can't give quality players like that a lift. We wanted to put them under pressure after their (Wolves) result and really it was a stroll.
"I was pleased we didn't just fold in the second half.
"We had to play for pride and, all credit to them, they battled well in the second half when it would have been easy to roll over."
