Serge Aurier could return to the Tottenham squad for the trip to Cardiff.
Right-back Aurier is fit again after three weeks out with a groin problem.
But Victor Wanyama, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier and Erik Lamela are set to miss out again.
Provisional squad: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Aurier, Sanchez, Rose, Winks, Eriksen, Moura, Son, Kane, Gazzaniga, Davies, Walker-Peters, Foyth, Sissoko, Skipp, N’Koudou, Alli, Llorente.
Cardiff manager Neil Warnock is unlikely to make many changes for the New Year’s Day game.
Warnock was delighted with a first away win of the season at Leicester on Saturday and has no new injury concerns.
Joe Bennett and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing could come into contention but Kenneth Zohore (thigh), Jazz Richards (hamstring) and Danny Ward (knee) remain out.
Provisional squad: Etheridge, Smithies, Peltier, Bennett, Morrison, Manga, Connolly, Cunningham, Bamba, Arter, Ralls, Gunnarsson, Damour, Camarasa, Harris, Hoilett, Paterson, Reid, Murphy, Mendez-Laing, Madine.
