Cardiff found it hard to get possession after that, although substitute Junior Hoilett did enliven them after the interval in their search for a first goal against Spurs for 41 years. Man United went on to win 5-1.

"All the planning goes out of the window".

"I was pleased that we hung in there because it's easy to throw the towel down when you're 3-0 down to a team like this".
