Chelsea’s Official Starting Eleven vs Cardiff

Cardiff host Chelsea with both clubs desperate for points at polar ends of the table – and it should be an intriguing contest between two very different styles of play.

Neil Warnock’s side experienced a harsh top-flight lesson at Stamford Bridge in September when Sol Bamba scored an early opener, but Eden Hazard hit back with a hat-trick before Willian sealed a 4-1 win.

The contrast between the approaches of managers Neil Warnock and Maurizio Sarri was evident on the day and, ahead of the reverse fixture in Wales, we examine a range of statistics to highlight just how radically different the two teams are in their approach…


Team to play Cardiff: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Barkley, Kovacic, Pedro, Higuain, Willian

Subs: Caballero, Kante, Hazard, Loftus-Cheek, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi, Christensen
