Chelsea unlikely to show Cardiff any mercy

Bluebirds may hold out until half time

Chelsea should take the points
1 of 1

3pm Saturday

Cardiff need to put more points on the board but they are unlikely to gain any reward at Chelsea.

Staying up is already looking a tall order for the Bluebirds and their situation is unlikely to improve over the next six games, which include a home match with Manchester City and trips to Tottenham and Liverpool.

Anything they get at Chelsea will be seen as a bonus and they might hold out until half-time.

Chelsea failed to score until the second half in their wins over Newcastle (2-1) and Bournemouth (2-0).

Recommendation
Draw-Chelsea double result
1pt 16-5 Betfred, Betway
