Ahead of Saturday afternoon's clash in South Wales, Sports Mole looks at how Neil Warnock may set out his side.
Cardiff are hopeful that Arter will be declared fit to start this weekend's clash, a week on from leaving the pitch at half time against Chelsea due to a stomach bug.
Should the Irishman be declared fit, Warnock is expected to go with the same four-man midfield - comprised of Junior Hoilett, Joe Ralls and makeshift wideman Victor Camarasa - that featured against Arsenal and Chelsea.
Hoilett's spot is most at risk after a slow start to life back in the Premier League, but Murphy's recent layoff means that he should retain his place for at least another week.
Another alternative for Warnock is to pad out his midfield with the addition of Gunnarsson, although that also seems unlikely as the Iceland international has yet to appear at senior level this term because of a long-standing knee problem.
