Possible Outcome

It’s hard to see any other outcome but a win for Liverpool. They have put in some dominant performances lately and with the title on the line it’s hard to see them dropping points.

Cardiff will be defending with ten men and Liverpool will need their wide mens and full-backs to break their defence down. Expect some trickery from Keita as well. Although we believe Salah and Mane will find a way to split open Cardiff’s defence.
