Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino expects a stern test against Cardiff but has called for a reaction after the defeat to Wolves. Tottenham went down 3-1 at home to Wolves last time out despite taking the lead, and Pochettino has urged them to get back to winning ways against the Bluebirds on New Year’s Day. “It’s going to be tough, Cardiff are a tough team to play against,” he told reporters. “We need to move on [after the Wolves defeat] and try to be ready to compete because we’re going to need big energy to play.
We need to be prepared for a big battle and we’re looking forward to it.”
The spurs boss could opt to make changes to his starting XI for the trip to the Cardiff City Stadium and Serge Aurier is in contention after recovering from a groin problem.
Lucas Moura came off the bench in the loss to Wolves and may be handed a start, while Pochettino remains without injury victims Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Erik Lamela.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
