There’s no official team news from the club as yet although it has been reported that Kyle Walker has returned to training and could therefore feature at right back in Sunday’s game. Meanwhile, there is no word on Danny Rose so we could see either Kyle Naughton or Zeki Fryers deputise.
The question in midfield is whether Sandro will make his first league start under Tim Sherwood or whether the Brazilian will lose out to Nabil Bentaleb. It’s hard to see the coach accommodating both men, particularly after last week’s performance at Norwich with a heavily defensive midfield.
Up front do we start with Adebayor and Soldado or revert to 4-5-1? Cardiff have won one league game in 11 so you feel if Sherwood doesn’t go with his most attacking formation here, he never will again.
Here’s what we’d like to see – it won’t necessarily happen – but what’s your view?
