Premier League Preview for Chelsea v Cardiff City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Chelsea’s start to the season hasn’t been as terrible as some have tried to make it seem. Perhaps too many expected them to steamroll the league and never lose, but their 14 points with a 4-2-1 record is good enough to put them in third and only two points off of the top.
Cardiff City is certainly a team that has surprised many, especially after their home win over Manchester City. They have scored seven goals to start the season, but have allowed nine. This includes an away record of 1-1-1 with three scored and four against.
My prediction is a Chelsea win. Their pragmatic approach to the match means that Cardiff will struggle to score. However, if Cardiff are able to get a goal, they could certainly make it an interesting match considering Chelsea’s difficulties when allowing goals.
Betting Odds: Chelsea win: 1.24-1.25; Draw: 5.91-6.52; Cardiff win: 12.09-15.16
Form: Chelsea (W, D, L, W, D, W) Cardiff (W, D, D, L, W, L)
