Following their 4-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool last weekend, Cardiff return home looking to improve on their disappointing start to the season in which they have won just one league game all season (W1, D2, L7). They sit one place above the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference.
Life back in the Premier League hasn’t gone as well as Cardiff manager Neil Warnock would have hoped. Conceding 23 goals so far, they have the second worst defensive record in the league. His side also have the lowest pass completion stats in the league (2,629 successfully completed). It is therefore no surprise the ‘Bluebirds’ have managed just seven goals from open play so far this campaign.
Cardiff welcome a Leicester City side looking to end a winless run stretching three games (D1, L2). There is plenty of value for money watching Leicester City this season, as every league match has seen over 1.5 goals.

The ‘Foxes’ can be slow starters however, often to the detriment of the full-time result. They have conceded 62% of their goals in the first-half this season and went onto lose five of those seven games.
Players to watch: Cardiff’s Callum Paterson netted his sides consolation goal at Anfield last weekend to become the club’s joint-top scorer with two goals. Meanwhile Leicester’s James Maddison continues to receive a mountain of plaudits this season and will be looking to add to his three goals.
