Neil Warnock will be immensely satisfied with the way in which 2018 has gone for Cardiff City, with the Bluebirds having enjoyed promotion to the Premier League and they have a decent chance of staying there.
A last-gasp winner at Leicester on Saturday means that the Welsh side have their heads above water although Warnock is a realist and twelve of Cardiff’s twenty matches have been lost thus far.
City will always have a crack at any opponents although they have suffered at home to some of the better teams this season, losing heavily against both Manchester sides and also being turned over at home to Arsenal.
Spurs will be in no mood to take their foot off the pedal after hammering in six goals at Everton before putting five past Bournemouth. It looked as though the same would happen against Wolves after an early Harry Kane goal.
However, Wanderers pulled irons out of the fire to win 3-1 and now Spurs have to regroup and get this match in south Wales won before an FA Cup date with Tranmere on Friday.
Dele Alli is back in the fold and there have been starring performances from Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane in recent weeks, with Spurs likely to overrun a Cardiff team who may be capable of scoring at least once.
Tottenham are not renowned for being defensively solid and they have hunted down nine wins from their eleven road trips, with only Arsenal and Watford able to come away with victories.
