Liverpool play against Cardiff City in a Premier League clash on Sunday and travel to Wales knowing nothing other than three points is good enough in their title race.

Neil Warnock’s relegation-threatened Bluebirds side will go into this clash as the firm underdogs.

Cardiff have lost three out of their last five Premier League games but are coming off a 2-0 victory against Brighton and Hove Albion, but Liverpool will be a sterner test.

The Reds are coming off a 4-1 victory over FC Porto in the Champions League and have won their past five consecutive Premier League games.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool  side will be fired up to win Sunday’s game as it will take them back to the top of the standings if they win, albeit having played a game more than Manchester City.

The last time that Liverpool played against Cardiff was back in October at Anfield and the Reds went on to prevail 4-1.

Klopp’s side have no major injury concerns ahead of their game against the Bluebirds, though they will have to make do without the services of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to a report published by Sky Sports. 

The Englishman has not played a competitive game for Liverpool this season due to a knee injury, which he sustained last term, but he is now training with his team-mates, which is good news.

The report added that Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren is set to be available again after having missed the Champions League victory over Porto due to illness.

All three of the previous Premier League games played between the two sides have been won by Liverpool. It is hard to see Klopp’s side not winning this game unless they get the basics wrong.
