Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has the players at his disposal to challenge for the Premier League title, according to Chelsea legend Claude Makelele.

Following an worldwide break where his players have travelled all over the globe, Maurizio Sarri will be looking to maintain his ideal start as Chelsea manager.

Cardiff have yet to win in the Premier League after gaining automatic promotion last season and Neil Warnock's side have found it hard upon their arrival, earning just two points from their first four games.

The Spaniard will be rested following his worldwide retirement, and appears one of the most likely City players to start in Kevin De Bruyne's absence.

Mentally the match after the break is very hard; materially because we will play against a very physical team.

Emerson Palmieri and Davide Zappacosta are major doubts for the game tomorrow after being struck down with a virus while Ruben Loftus-Cheek could also miss out after picking up a knock while away with England this week. If he wants to play for another season I think it's right he tries to play.

But that hasn't deterred the Bluebirds boss in his attempts to sign a Chelsea youngster on loan this season. Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is out for three months after suffering a knee injury against Huddersfield.

The game kicks off at 3pm BST (10am ET) on Saturday and it will not be shown on TV in the United Kingdom.

The Blues went into the break following a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth, with Pedro and Eden Hazard getting on the scoresheet.

The former Napoli coach has a 100 per cent record in the Premier League since replacing departed compatriot Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea didn't get their first goal until halfway through the second period but in the end remain flawless in the Premier League heading into the worldwide break. "It's up to him, I am very open with him because of his history with the club".
