thumbnail Hello,

The two sides are at opposite ends of the Premier League table and our tipster is backing Brendan Rodgers' men to enjoy an emphatic win against the Bluebirds

Liverpool took a giant step towards claiming their first league title in 24 years when they recorded a hugely impressive 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend. Brendan Rodgers’ men will now be hoping to maintain momentum when they face struggling Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds have been in glorious goalscoring form in recent weeks, having notched an impressive 13 times in their last four Premier League outings, and the surprise title-chasers will be keen to heap more misery on the Bluebirds.

Liverpool can be backed at just 4/11 (1.36) with William Hill to claim all three points from this weekend’s clash, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are available at a chunky 7/1 (8.0) with the same firm to pick up a much-needed victory.

Given the contrasting fortunes of the sides thus far this term, the Bluebirds may well be satisfied with a point and such an outcome can be backed at 19/5 (4.80) with William Hill.

Much of the attention during Liverpool’s ascent up the Premier League table has featured around the deadly strike duo of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, who have notched a hugely impressive 43 league goals between them thus far this term.

However, it was captain Steven Gerrard who was the hero at Old Trafford – netting twice from the penalty spot – and with Cardiff vulnerable at the back, the Reds may well fancy their chances of getting amongst the goals again this weekend.

William Hill offer 4/5 (1.80) for England striker Sturridge to find the net at any time in Cardiff, while the same firm go 4/7 (1.57) that Uruguayan striker Suarez is on target.

Gerrard is appealing at 7/4 (2.75) with William Hill to add to his goal haul against the Bluebirds but better value may lie in backing the team goals market here.

Liverpool have notched at least three times in no fewer than seven of their last nine Premier League matches and, therefore, it is the 13/10 (2.30) quote from William Hill for the Reds to score more than two in Cardiff that is the recommended play for punters.
