CARDIFF begin their Premier League adventure with a trip Bournemouth.
Neil Warnock’s men pulled off a shock promotion to the top-flight as they finished second to Wolves last season.
But their first clash against the Cherries could be a shock to the system, with Bournemouth looking to improve upon their 12th-placed finish.
Joe Ralls’ whipped deliveries and calmness from the penalty spot could prove crucial in this game.

Midfielder Lewis Cook’s brilliant form last season has seen him linked with a move to Tottenham.
At just 21, he has developed after his second full campaign in the top-flight.
Should Bournemouth hold on to him, Cook’s range of passing and ability to sniff out danger will be key.
