Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea welcome newly-promoted Cardiff City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday in what Blues fans will anticipate to be a fifth win on the bounce in the Premier League.

Cardiff head to west London without victory in the first four fixtures, having only scored two goals since gaining promotion as runners-up in the Championship last season.

Chelsea on the other hand look as if they have plenty of goals in them and host the Bluebirds on Saturday with all but full strength first team – with Cesc Fabregas the only injury doubt.

Alvaro Morata is likely to once again get the nod in spearheading the Chelsea attack, despite Olivier Giroud netting a winner for world champions France in their recent international against the Netherlands.

The other big selection question will be whether Pedro or Willian start against the Bluebirds – it would appear that the Spaniard will get the nod having come off the bench last time out against Bournemouth netting in a 2-0 win.

Defensively CFCnet expects the same names to once again take the field – including David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger in the centre.

Mateo Kovacic is once again expected to partner with N’Golo Kante and Jorginho in a midfield that is looking increasingly settled as Maurizio Sarri settles on his 4-3-3 formation.

Predicted Chelsea Line Up vs Cardiff

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
Defence: Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso
Midfield: Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante
Attack: Pedro, Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata
