Chelsea vs Cardiff City prediction

By

Chelsea return from the international break on Saturday looking to maintain their 100% win record when they host winless Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri has made it four wins from four games to start his career in England as Chelsea look very good going forward with Eden Hazard looking back to his best.

Neil Warnock’s Cardiff have drawn two and lost two since returning to the Premier League, with their 3-2 loss at home to Arsenal being the sole game they have scored in.  They have also relied on goalkeeper Neil Etheridge to save two penalties.

Rightfully the bookmakers have Chelsea at very short odds to win this one, even with their squad travelling all over the world last week.  They’ve looked impressive to start the new campaign and have the personnel to take Cardiff to the sword this weekend.

I don’t see Cardiff hanging with the West London side and a comfortable win should be on the cards as a result for Chelsea this weekend.
