Premier League Preview: Bournemouth Vs Cardiff Prediction, Team News And Preview As Promoted Boys Look To Hit Ground Running

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.

Set-piece specialist

Joe Ralls’ whipped deliveries and calmness from the penalty spot could prove crucial in this game.

Cardiff centre-back Sean Morrison is a threat from set-pieces and can punish Bournemouth if he gets on the end of a Ralls corner.

Key man

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.
