Cardiff can capitalise on Tottenham's tough week
Barca beating may have softened Spurs up
Kick-off 3pm Saturday
Tottenham are doing just about enough to keep their fans on their side but they have had a tough week, losing 4-2 to Barcelona on Wednesday, and may be worth opposing when they play struggling Cardiff.
Getting any points from the big boys is tough for promoted teams but Cardiff could not have picked a better time to take on the Lilywhites.
The Londoners are likely to be feeling mentally and physically tired after their midweek exertions and may lack creativity with Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Mousa Dembele injured.
Cardiff or draw double chance
1pt 10-3 bet365
Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli (both hamstring), Christian Eriksen (abdominal strain), Mousa Dembele and Serge Aurier (both thigh) are out but Michel Vorm (knee) is available.
Junior Hoilett (virus) is available but Aron Gunnarsson (knee) will not be ready until after the international break.
Tottenham have conceded at least two goals in four of their last five home matches.
