Everything you need to know ahead or Premier League matchday eight.

Julian Finney

Chelsea will be resuming their season in just under 24 hours, as they host newly promoted Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge. Most of the squad looks to be in good form following the international break, although there are a few minor injuries to concern us. Here's everything you need to know in advance of matchday eight.

Date/Time: Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 15:00 London time (10 am EDT, 7 am PDT, 19:30 IST)

Opponent: Cardiff City (14th, 8 pts from 7 games, -2 GD)

Location/Venue: Stamford Bridge, London, England

Chelsea FC squad news: Jose Mourinho confirmed today that neither Ashley Cole or Andre Schurrle will be ready to play on Saturday, meaning that Ryan Bertrand will almost certainly start in Cole's place. Who will be starting in Schurrle's place is yet to be determined, but it will be interesting to see if the opportunity sees Kevin De Bruyne return to the matchday squad.

Cardiff City squad news: Cardiff have no real injuries worth noting, but Craig Bellamy is still a tool.

Television listings: In the US, you need Premier League Extra Time to see this one. In the UK, you need a ticket. In India fans can actually watch this one, it's on ESPN HD. For anyone else, you can track down the listings here.

Streaming information: NBC Sports Live Extra will be streaming the game in the United States, and Chelsea TV will have live audio for those of you in the UK.
