Cardiff City vs Liverpool Predictions – Liverpool line-up

After drubbing Porto and reaching the Champions League semifinals, Liverpool turn their attention towards the Premier League title race. Their next opponents are Cardiff City this Sunday, and a win will take them top of the table regardless of what Manchester City do on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are high on confidence going into this game and the momentum is on their side. However, Cardiff will be a tough nut to crack, especially at their home ground. Hence, the Reds have to be at their best to get three points on Sunday.
