I'm a bit surprised to see Spurs return to 4-4-2, but I guess an extra man in midfield isn't necessarily needed against Cardiff. Plus, Roberto Soldado has looked dangerous in his last two appearances and might finally break his duck. Let's hope that, with Tim Sherwood picking two strikers, this lineup features Andros Townsend on the left and Aaron Lennon on the right. Also, as lame as Cardiff's wingers are, that fullback tandem is terrifying. Christian Eriksen's absence is sad and awful and the worst.
Kickoff is at 4:30 p.m. local time, 11:30 p.m. ET from White Hart Lane. You can catch the game on NBC Sports Network in the US. It's not on TV in the UK.
