Serge Aurier could return to Tottenham's squad for their clash with Cardiff on New Year's Day after missing several weeks of action with a groin problem.
The Ivory Coast international has been out for three weeks, missing a large chunk of the hectic Christmas schedule. However,
Aurier's absence cemented Trippier's place in the team at right-back but the England international's own injury problems opened the door for Kyle Walker-Peters to start against Bournemouth and the 21-year-old took advantage, grabbing three assists on Boxing Day.
However, Tottenham still have plenty of injury problems despite Aurier's return, with a lack of central midfield options a major worry for Mauricio Pochettino.
Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko have played consistently during a congested fixture list, with Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele all currently sidelined through injury.
The Lilywhites will be eager to win at Cardiff and stay within touching distance of Manchester City, who regained second spot in the Premier League thanks to their win at Southampton.
