Chelsea vs Cardiff City

Chelsea vs Cardiff City

Maurizio Sarri has said he has been warning his Chelsea players all week about the danger of dropping points after global breaks as they prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at home to Cardiff City on Saturday.

With the Sarriball revolution well underway at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea players are adapting to their new manager and the new system quite well as the 2018/19 season progresses.

The Blues have recorded four wins in four games so far this campaign and will hope to continue their momentum when they host Cardiff City today.

One of the most important and featuring players during the run has been David Luiz. "Mentally after the (international) break it is hard", said the 59-year-old Italian.

Emerson Palmieri and Davide Zappacosta are major doubts for the game tomorrow after being struck down with a virus while Ruben Loftus-Cheek could also miss out after picking up a knock while away with England this week.

"These kinds of players give a different story about Chelsea than the way we knew Chelsea before".

The promoted side appear to be struggling to cope with the huge demands of the EPL though boss Neil Warnock has promised an attacking strategy against the Blues.

Aron Gunnarsson and Josh Murphy seem set from a return from injury for City, though Nathaniel Mendez-Laing remains out with a longer term injury concern.

The game kicks off at 3pm BST (10am ET) on Saturday and it will not be shown on TV in the United Kingdom. HEAD TO HEAD:Chelsea and Cardiff have played on 23 occasions, both teams have won each match matches against each other and seven ended in a draw.

Neil Etheridge says while he expects Chelsea to challenge for the Premier League title, he believes Cardiff have enough to punish the Blues.

Chelsea attacker Pedro, who could make his 100th Premier League appearance in this match, has scored three goals his last four league games, as many as in his previous 26 combined.
