Premier League Match Preview: Liverpool vs Cardiff

Jurgen Klopp will hope Liverpool have rediscovered their best form after beating FK Crvena Zvezda 4-0 on Wednesday night in the Champions League.

Cardiff climbed out of the bottom three last weekend after picking up their first win of the season, a hugely impressive 4-2 victory over Fulham.

This is the first meeting between the two teams since March 2014 when Liverpool ran out 6-3 winners, featuring a Luis Suarez hat-trick. Liverpool has not conceded a home league goal this season and that is unlikely to change here. Start forecasting your weekend games Now
