Mauricio Pochettino has named his Tottenham Hotspur side that will face Cardiff City this evening (5:30pm BST kick-off)
Cardiff are currently positioned three points above the drop zone, while anything less than a victory for Tottenham side would realistically end any hopes they harbour about trying to catch Liverpool.
Tottenham looked tired during the second half of the shock 3-1 defeat against Wolves, which saw the away side score all three goals in the last 19 minutes to cause an upset.
Spurs fans will be looking for a vastly improved performance from their side but will be aware Cardiff are heading into the match on the back of beating Leicester City away from home last time out.
This is who starts at the Cardiff City Stadium as Spurs look to begin 2019 in the best possible way:
Cardiff City: Etheridge, Manga, Paterson, Cunningham, S. Morrison, Bamba, Gunnarsson, Arter, Murphy, Camarasa, Reid.
Subs: Peltier, Bennett, Ralls, Smithies, Mendez-Laing, Madine, Hoilett
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Son, Kane.
Subs: Gazzaniga, Davies, Foyth, Walker-Peters, Skipp, Lucas, Llorente
