Soccer | Cardiff City vs Chelsea

Chelsea will be hosting Cardiff City at home at Stamford Bridge for the next game in the English Premier League.

Cardiff City have struggled this season as they are yet to win a match and currently have 2 points. The biggest issue for Cardiff has been scoring goals as the entire team has only managed to score twice all season. The defense has been solid enough for Cardiff City as they have managed to keep two clean sheets and have only conceded 5 goals all season. 3 of the 5 goals were conceded in one game against Arsenal so it can be seen that there is enough potential in the defense. The defense will need to continue playing well in this match since Chelsea are filled with exceptional players and Cardiff will be determined to stop them scoring.

On the other side of the coin, Chelsea have started their season very well. The Blues have a perfect record of 4-0-0  and will look to maintain that in this match. Eden Hazard has been very good for the Blues and he has been supported exceptionally well by Jorginho and N'golo Kante. Stamford Bridge has always been a fortress for Chelsea and that seems to be continuing this season as they have won both of their games including a victory against Arsenal. Chelsea will look to improve their defense since they have only kept 2 clean sheets all season which is quite low for a team of the standards of Chelsea.

This will be the first time these two teams will play each other for an age since Cardiff was a league below for the past few seasons.

All in all, I am going to pick Chelsea to win this match. The Blues have the better players, the better form and the advantage of being at home. I see a comfortable Chelsea victory.
