Cardiff City enter the 2018-19 season as a Premier League side after finishing runners-up in the Championship last season.

The Bluebirds finished bottom of the Premier League in 2012-13, lasting for just one season under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, under current manager Neil Warnock Cardiff have gone from strength to strength and will be looking for a top-half finish.  

Warnock has kept the squad largely similar to last season with just a few additions from Championship clubs.

Goal brings you your complete guide to the Bluebirds' 2018-19 Premier League fixtures, with dates, venues and all you need to know.
