Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction, Team News vs Cardiff City


eden hazard chelsea

Chelsea, one of three Premier League sides to take all 12 points from the first 12 points possible this season, look to stay perfect on Saturday. They’ll continue the young season by welcoming newly promoted Cardiff City to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

News wise, it was a relatively quiet international break for Chelsea, and that’s a good thing. Typically, the only major news that occurs over an international break relates to serious injuries, and the Blues have no worries there, as they head into this game with a squad that’s very fit and healthy.

The only real news out of Stamford Bridge this week related to a report that the club was set to make a small change to their club crest. The club issued a statement disputing that report.

Let’s take a look at who Maurizio Sarri may start in this match. We’re going with Pedro over Willian, I guess we’ll see what the Italian does with his selection.
