Chelsea host Cardiff City in matchday 5 of the Premier League on Saturday 15th September, 3:00pm at Stamford Bridge. The hosts currently sit in 2nd place in the table having beaten Bournemouth 2-0 last time out, while the visitors are in 16th after their 2-3 loss against Arsenal.
The Blues have won 65%, drawn 20% and lost 15% of their last 20 home games, indeed, they have won 10 of their last 12 league meetings with Cardiff (D1 L1), including both previous Premier League meetings in the 2013-14 campaign.
The Blues have also lost just one of their last 51 home Premier League games against newly promoted opposition (W42 D8 L1), with that defeat coming against Bournemouth in December 2015.
Chelsea have won each of their opening four Premier League games to a season for the sixth time (also 2004-05, 2005-06, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2014-15), at least twice more than any other side in the competition’s history.
Looking at the form, Chelsea have a 82% chance of beating Cardiff City which makes the hosts looks unstoppable – on paper.
