Good cross in from Naughton and Eriksen can’t quite direct the header past Marshall.

It’s been a frantic opening from Cardiff and Spurs have barely settled. Walker finds Soldado and it’s an excellent save from Marshall.
7'
That could easily have been curtains for Lloris if he had been adjudged to handle outside the box.
6'
 
Walker receives yellow for a challenge on Whittingham. Lloris looks lucky to get away with that.
5'

4'
 
Campbell furious at being flagged offside but the linesman probably had it right.
3'
Fantastic crossfield pass from Naughton and moments later he has a shot that sails over. Eriksen had made a good run but wasn’t seen.

Referee Mark Clattenburg blows the whistle to get us underway here. Tottenham looked great against Tromso on Thursday so it will be interesting to see how Cardiff cope.
15:55
Five minutes to kick off here. MATCH ODDS: Cardiff 7/2, Tottenham 10/11, Draw 13/5
15:50
Cardiff’s Don Cowie has two assists this season but Mesut Ozil had three assists today.
15:45
Cardiff City will want to get off to a strong start but are one of five Barclays Premier League sides yet to score a first half goal this season.
15:40
Malky Mackay: "They look like a Champions League squad now, it is absolutely a match for the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea. The players he already had were a good top-six team, but I think they have strength in depth with the players they have brought in. Some of those players I covet. Spurs' agenda this year, I am sure, is to be a Champions League team. They may have a big fixture list, but they also have a big squad full of quality."
15:35
Andre Villas-Boas: "Cardiff have made a great start, not only that, but they have the inspiration of the win against Manchester City. They have a stadium full of emotion and atmosphere and they are a very competitive side, so we need to be aware of their strengths and hopefully go there and achieve a great result.”
15:30
If Tottenham win today then they will go joint top of the league with Arsenal, who are about to beat Stoke City at the Emirates. Cardiff, meanwhile, start the day 15th, with a win putting them as high as joint sixth.
15:25
David Marshall returns to the Cardiff starting line-up. The Scotland keeper missed the draw at Hull after picking up a hip injury on international duty, but he is back to full fitness, along with Craig Bellamy. For Spurs, Danny Rose doesn't make it but Mousa Dembele has recovered from an injury sustained in the Europa League.
