Tottenham Hotspur will clash heads with Cardiff City at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday hoping to turn their fortunes around after their disappointing midweek defeat versus Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League. Spurs are in dire need of a win to keep pace with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
The North London outfit will come up against a struggling Cardiff side who are finding it hard to score goals in the English top-flight. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is expected to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might make a few changes for this league contest this weekend.
4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Cardiff City
Hugo Lloris could be dropped for this match after a poor showing versus Barca in midweek. Michel Vorm is a significant doubt for this clash so Paulo Gazzaniga might start in goal for Spurs. The defensive pair of Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez is expected to continue their partnership at the centre of Pochettino’s backline as Jan Vertonghen is a major worry for this encounter against the Bluebirds.
Kieran Trippier will operate as the right-back while Danny Rose could return to the side as he looks to join in on the attack down the left flank. The Tottenham defenders finally managed to keep a clean sheet at the weekend against Huddersfield Town but were very disappointing against the Catalans on Wednesday night when they shipped in four goals in front of their home supporters.
However, this match against Cardiff could serve as an ideal opportunity for them to get some confidence back by keeping a shutout on the day.
The midfield pair of Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele might continue to feature at the middle of the pitch. They will sit deep and operate as the holding midfielders while also trying to create some chances for their front players to feed on.
The talented trio of Heung-min Son, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura could be deployed ahead of them as part of the Tottenham attack. Lamela has arguably been Spurs’ best player going forward over the past few weeks, and he proved his worth once again against Barca as he scored a goal and created an assist on Wednesday night.
Harry Kane will once again spearhead Spurs’ attack up top after scoring three goals in his last two starts for the North Londoners. The English forward is slowly coming back to his best form so we can expect him to find the back of the net versus the Bluebirds on Saturday afternoon.
