Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Tottenham will be looking to build on a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town when they host Cardiff City at Wembley Stadium. Spurs quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Liverpool and, no doubt, thanks to back-to-back wins over the likes of Brighton and Huddersfield Town they remained in the race for the title. Mauro Pochettino’s troops are seen as hot favourites to win Saturday’s football game against Cardiff City and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field. Harry Kane, who scored a brace in the 2-0 win over the Terriers, will be the man to watch in the home side and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. The Bluebirds, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late and seeing that they conceded nine goals in back-to-back losses to the likes of Chelsea and Man City, we do not believe that they are capable of making a miracle in London.
Highlighted Player (Jan Vertonghen):
After spending four years at Ajax, in 2006 Jan Vertonghen signed a loan deal with RKC Waalwijk. The left-footed defender spent one season at Mandemakers Stadion and he returned to Ajax for the 2007/2008 season. The highly rated footballer, who is capable of playing as both centre back and left back, signed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur on 8 July, 2012 and he has been playing for the Premier League outfit ever since.
The Belgian defender scored four goals for the Spurs in the 2012/2013 Premier League season and he made 34 league appearances for the White Hart Lane outfit back then. In the 2015/2016 season Jan Vertonghen and his teammates were producing brilliant displays with Tottenham, but the Spurs eventually finished the campaign in third place in the standings.
Speaking of his international career, Vertonghen made it to both World Cup (2014) and Euro (2016) quarter-finals with the Belgian national team. Jan was born on 24 April, 1987 and his shirt number is 5.
Highlighted Team (Cardiff City):
Cardiff City are a Welsh football club that compete in the English second tier (Championship). In 2009 they moved from Ninian Park to Cardiff City Stadium, the venue that officially holds 33,280 spectators.
The Bluebirds played their first ever Premier League match on 18 August, 2013, but they were beaten by West Ham United (0-2) on their debut in the English top flight. However, a week later Fraizer Campbell (two goals) and Aron Gunnarson helped Cardiff City record their first ever win in the Premier League.
The Bluebirds outplayed Manchester City back then, but they eventually dropped to the Championship at the end of the season. Fellow Welsh outfit Swansea City are considered Cardiff’s fiercest rivals and the two teams take on each other in the South Wales derby.
The colour of Cardiff City’s home kit is blue, whilst they wear red shirts and shorts when playing on the travels.
