Tottenham Hotspur vs. Cardiff City: Preview and TV schedule

Jamie McDonald

Tottenham Hotspur shouldn't have a problem dispatching relegation strugglers Cardiff City on Sunday.

Tim Sherwood hasn't overly impressed as Tottenham Hotspur manager, but he's still managing to pick up results. Spurs sit fifth in the table heading into the weekend, six points in arrears of Liverpool and the final Champions League spot. They should keep the pressure on with a win this weekend, as they host Ole Gunnar Solskjær's struggling Cardiff City.

The decision to replace Malky Mackay with Solskjær is one which hasn't exactly gone according to plan, with the Norwegian having only overseen one league win since taking over in January. They're now in the relegation zone, and are increasingly looking like relegation certainties.

For this match, Spurs will certainly be without defensive trio Vlad Chiricheș, Younes Kaboul and Danny Rose, who are all injured. Cardiff have captain and centre-back Mark Hudson out, and will likely also miss star midfielder Gary Medel with a thigh problem.

Tottenham Hotspur injuries and suspensions

Out: Vlad Chiricheș (back), Younes Kaboul (calf), Danny Rose (knee). In doubt: None.
