Lawrenson expects the Blues to maintain their perfect starts to the new English topflight competition by defeating Neil Warnock’s side at home.
Chelsea head to the game following a 2-0 victory against Bournemouth in their last EPL encounter.
Cardiff on the other hand, head to the game after a 3-2 defeat to Arsenal in their last EPL game.
Speaking in an interview with BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: “Like Liverpool and Watford, Chelsea have got a 100 per cent record from their first four league games and I see that perfect start continuing here.
“Cardiff, in contrast, have not won yet but I don’t think their manager Neil Warnock will be too concerned, even if they lose again on Saturday.
“The big games for the Bluebirds are against the teams that are going to be around them towards the bottom of the table – anything they get at Stamford Bridge is a bonus but they do not want to be on the end of a heavy defeat.
“I’d expect the Welsh side to be very competitive, but Chelsea will have too much for them.”
“Prediction is Chelsea 3 Cardiff 0.”
The kick-off time for the match is 3pm.
