Sky Sports pundit duo Danny Higginbotham and Jonas Olsson have heavily criticised Tottenham Hotspur's Cameron Carter-Vickers for his 'awful' challenge during Stoke City's 2-0 defeat against West Brom on Monday night.

Centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers is on a season-long loan at the struggling Championship club, as his reckless second-half challenge on Albion's Grady Diangana resulted in the away team winning a spot-kick - the penalty was converted by Hal Robson-Kanu. 

It has been a pretty disastrous season for Stoke, who despite having the most expensive squad in the division, are sitting bottom of the table, without a manager, and staring at the possibility of dropping into the third-tier. 

 

Speaking to Sky Sports Football (04/11/19 at 9:45 pm), former Albion defender Olsson wasn't impressed with the 'brutality' of Carter-Vickers challenge, as he thinks that he should have been given more than a yellow card. 

"Carter-Vickers is making a last-ditch challenge, which is an awful challenge," Higginbotham told Sky Sports. "We have looked at it [the tackle] so many times, and it just doesn't get any better. It is an awful challenge."

Former WBA defender Olsson added: "This tackle is, I know the rule is you try to play for the ball its not a sending off. But you have to take into consideration the brutality of the tackle."

Carter-Vickers hasn't been impressing during his loan spells in the Championship, as this most recent one is without a doubt his worst.

Whilst his own performances haven't been all too bad, Stoke are in a pretty dismal state, and as things stand, they are only headed one way and that's straight to League One. 

Carter-Vickers will be hoping that the appointment of a new manager will help lift his spirits, bring the best out of him and bring the best out of Stoke, who are now facing a relegation battle.
