Chelsea
Cardiff City

The much-loved Premier League returns this weekend with Chelsea hosting Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge, as both sides look to build and rebuild some momentum respectively. Chelsea are yet to drop a point in the league this season, winning all four of their matches and sparking new-found hope of potential silverware this season. Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City have faced a much less successful start to their campaign, but have shown signs of potential, conceding goals in just two of their first four. Following the international break, will we see Chelsea continue their win-streak, or will Cardiff upset the odds? Read on for all the information you need to make your best bets.

Both teams to score is priced at a very decent 5/4 with Betway, so our low-risk tip is backing that pretty strongly. Although it is more likely not to happen according to the bookmakers, we feel that Cardiff City could manage a goal against the Blues, just look at their recent performance against Arsenal (2-3) for justification. Chelsea have also conceded in two of their opening four matches. Our medium-risk betting tip is for Marcos Alonso to score anytime at 16/5 with Betfair, which is worth a shot due to his set-piece expertise and his natural ability to score goals as a defender. For the high-risk punters, a draw is priced at 6/1 with William Hill, so why not think about it? Cardiff held Huddersfield and Newcastle to draws and almost even did so against Arsenal.

Chelsea vs Cardiff City Betting Tips: Form Guide

Chelsea’s Perfect Premier League Start

Chelsea are near-enough full strength again this weekend, with only Fabregas a doubt due to a knee injury. Chelsea, along with Liverpool and Watford, are one of few sides to have begun the season perfectly, winning four from their first four matches. The Blues began their campaign with an expected but tricky win over Huddersfield (0-3), which was followed by an even tougher clash against rivals Arsenal. They defeated the Gunners 3-2 in a thrilling encounter, with goals from Pedro, Morata and Marcos Alonso securing the win. Following that, Chelsea met Newcastle in the North East, where they won 1-2, and then most recently secured a comfortable 2-0 victory over Bournemouth at home before the international break. Chelsea are certainly firing on all cylinders this season, scoring 11 goals in their opening matches, but will they continue this form following a week or so off? Maurizio Sarri has enjoyed a perfect start to life in the Premier League, and we feel that they could well challenge for the title this season.

Cardiff Must Improve In Attack

Cardiff City’s first season back in the Premier League was always going to be a tough one due to a lack of high-quality signings, but it is not all bad signs for the Bluebirds. They are down at 16th place after four games, and are one of just five teams who are yet to win this season, although they have managed two draws. Two points from four games is not a brilliant start, but it is far from disastrous for Warnock’s men. They have been defensively sound, but certainly struggled to find the net, and only did so in their most recent fixture against Arsenal of all teams. Cardiff welcome back Aron Gunnarson and his gigantic throw-in following a knee injury. Their opening match against Bournemouth ended in heartache, losing 2-0, which was followed by an improvement with two back-to-back 0-0 draws against both Newcastle and Huddersfield Town. They have demonstrated defensive grit thus far, but have not shown knack for goal-scoring. Their most recent performance against Arsenal was one to be proud of, losing 2-3 after Lacazette found the net in the 81st minute. Cardiff equalised twice through Victor Camarasa and Danny Ward, but Arsenal simply had too much quality in the end.

Chelsea vs Cardiff City Preview: Recent Meetings

These two sides have met just twice in the Premier League, back when Cardiff had their first short spell in the competition during 2013-14. Chelsea comfortably won at Stamford Bridge, with Jordon Mutch scoring Cardiff’s only goal, whereas Chelsea’s Hazard (x2), Eto’o, and Oscar all found the net in their 4-1 victory. Much hype is beginning to surround this Chelsea side, similarly to how it was back then, so Blues fans will expect a similar result this weekend. Chelsea unsurprisingly won the return fixture at the Cardiff City Stadium as well, but that time in a less dominant manner by just 2-1. It is an interesting clash, as both sides are really on opposite sides of the spectrum, but no result should be written off here due to the unpredictability of the Premier League.

Chelsea vs Cardiff City Prediction: Favourites Chelsea Win

This clash of two teams on completely different ends of the scale will be an intense fixture, as Cardiff will do everything to shut Chelsea’s attack out, whereas Chelsea will look to use their attacking quality and work-ethic. Although Cardiff will certainly make it tough for the Londoners, due to their solidity at the back, we feel that Chelsea will simply have too much skill and world-class quality for the South Wales side. With the likes of Hazard, Kante, and Pedro, we feel that the attacking flair and patience of the Blues will break the Bluebirds down at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea eventually getting a comfortable win. Cardiff can always cause an upset, as they almost showed against Arsenal, so do not write them off in the league just yet. Nevertheless, Chelsea know how to break their opponents down, and you cannot bet against their perfect win-streak to date.
