The LIV vs CAR match preview –
Premier League joint leaders Liverpool will be looking to maintain their position as they take on Cardiff City on Saturday.
Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League. Except for a loss in the Carabao Cup and in UEFA Champions League, the team has dominated most of the games. Their attacking trident of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah has got the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri to rely on to supplement the goals. This team has taken their game to another level this season, and the defensive frailties have been handled well as well. This just might finally be the year of the Reds in the Premier League.
On the other hand, newly promoted team Cardiff City has only managed to win a singular game this season. It has always been difficult for new sides to come in and get acclimatised immediately with the ferocious pace and tenacity of the Premier League. Manager Neil Warnock is an experienced coach and he would be aware of the odds that are going around that say Cardiff are one of the favourites to be relegated this season. He has made a career out of proving the odds makers wrong and will be looking to do the same by getting a good result against the league leaders.
