Cardiff City has a few players in the squad who can prove their credentials in the Premier League this season, whether they survive relegation or not.
The Bluebirds' opening game against West ham showed that Malky Mackay's team has a lot to sort out as the season progresses. The lack of potency in the attacking third, and the disorganization defensively are the two major elements to address.
The players on this list have little to no Premier League experience, but we won't be judging them solely on Cardiff City's opening encounter. Now this isn't to say these are the only Cardiff City players who can prove their Premier League credentials, but the ones who will.
While we don't expect these players to become stars, though some could, we expect them to stand toe-to-toe with the Premier League's best, and give their team a fighting chance as a result. These players will be productive in their roles for Cardiff, and could even be solid players on other teams in the league.
Of course, this list won't include the likes of Craig Bellamy, Andrew Taylor, Frazier Campbell and Steven Caulker.
Bellamy is well know to Premier League fans from his time at Liverpool, West Ham, Newcastle and so on. Taylor spent the early portion of his career as a regular for Middlesbrough, while Campbell's injuries are what prevented him from seeing regular time. Caulker did well during his season on-loan at Swansea City, and showed his talent when given the chance at Tottenham last season.
Peter Whittingham is another player with some experience in the Premier League, but unlike the others, he had little chance to prove himself at Aston Villa.
Here are the Cardiff City players who will prove their Premier League credentials this season.
