Relegation threatened Cardiff welcome top four threatened Chelsea to South Wales in a game that will have huge ramifications at both ends of the table.


As the final international break before the end of the Premier League draws to a close, it means the business end of the season is well and truly upon us with everything still to be decided.

Although Cardiff and Chelsea are battling at different ends of the table, it is the Bluebirds who went into the break on a high after victory over West Ham United lifted the spirits of Neil Warnock’s men and within touching distance of safety.

However, after conceding 10 goals in their last three meetings with Chelsea, it is somewhat understandable that the Blues enter the game with popular sportsbooks as the overwhelming favourites to record a ninth away win of the season.

That said, if the Bluebirds are going to stay up, then it will be thanks to their home form, having picked up 20 of their 28-points in Wales this season.

After the international break and beginning a run of favourable fixtures for Chelsea, it would take an almighty effort from the Bluebirds to topple the visitors.

Chelsea have won two of their last four away games 2-1 in all competitions and due to a shaky back-line – they have conceded 23 goals on the road this season – seeing that result occurring once again would not be a huge shock.
