After 10 minutes newly-promoted Cardiff City lead Chelsea 1-0 thanks to a goal from Jordon Mutch.

Stamford Bridge stood on and watched in stunned silence as the Welsh team took a shock lead following a massive defensive mix up. One long ball forward from ‘keeper David Marshall flicked off John Terry and towards Chelsea midfielder Ramires.

Mutch then nipped in to deflect the ball off Ramires and with David Luiz thinking Chelsea’s goalkeeper Petr Cech was going to clean up the danger, he let Mutch run in behind and dink the ball over Cech for the opener. An embarrassing mistake from Brazilian defender Luiz.

Can Cardiff pull off a shock win against Jose Mourinho’s Blues at Stamford Bridge?
