Preview: Liverpool v Cardiff City

liverpool-cardiffThings get started bright and early on Saturday with a match of great consequence when Liverpool hosts Cardiff City at Anfield.

Liverpool could go top of the table if they manage to overcome Cardiff at Anfield tomorrow lunchtime as they look for their fourth consecutive league victory – and build on the 14 goals they have scored in their previous three games. Luis Suarez is to thank for over half of them. You should be placing your bets on Suarez scoring a few goals in this match on or Liverpool winning on a big margin again.

Liverpool are still without captain Steven Gerrard, who will not be fit to return to the new year because of his hamstring injury.

Brendan Rodgers is also missing striker Daniel Sturridge and defender Jose Enrique.

Cardiff await news on whether ex-Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy will be fit to face his former club.

Aside from that, Bluebirds manager Malky Mackay has a fully fit squad to select from.

Cardiff enter the match on the back of a much-needed victory over West Bromwich, with Peter Whittingham's header ending their five-match winless run in the top flight.

That result saw the end of another managerial reign in the Premier League, with Steve Clarke sacked at West Bromwich following the loss.

Cardiff sit 15th in the table, four points above the relegation zone, but the strained relationship between chairman Vincent Tan and manager Mackay has hit the headlines again this week.

Mackay had previously spoken about his desire to sign players in January but Tan hit back in a strongly worded statement, saying that "not a penny" would be spent in the upcoming transfer window and that the manager had had more than enough funding.

Rodgers shared his sympathies with Mackay, saying: "He has had great results this season and is going to go on and be a great manager at a big club and I find it absolutely astonishing there is talk about him leaving there."

So far this season Liverpool’s home form has been very good, with the loss to Southampton in September the only blot on their Anfield copybook so far this season, and they come up against a Cardiff side that has only won the one game on the road this term.

The two club’s last met in the final of the Capital One Cup in the 2012 when won 3-2 on penalties after it finished 2-2 in normal time.

The last league meeting between the two sides came during the 1959/1960 season in the old second division when Cardiff won 4-0 at Anfield, a similar result this time round would send shockwaves throughout the Premier League.

Fancy Suarez scoring a hat-trick?

Match Preview: Blackpool v Liverpool

Blackpool v Liverpool Barclays Premier League
Venue: Bloomfield Road

Date: Wednesday, 12 January

Kick-off: 2000 GMT

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway will reshuffle his pack after making nine changes for the FA Cup defeat to Southampton.

Elliot Grandin is available after a hamstring injury but David Carney is on international duty at the Asian Cup.

Liverpool's Steven Gerrard is banned while Glen Johnson will be a doubt if his partner has not given birth.

Joe Cole has an ankle problem and Paul Konchesky has a dead leg - both will be given late fitness tests.


Injured/unavailable: Basham (leg), Carney (international duty), Clarke, Gilks & Martin (all knee), Harewood (hamstring)


Suspended: Gerrard (three matches)

Doubtful: Cole (ankle), Johnson (personal reasons), Konchesky (dead leg)

Injured: Carragher (shoulder), Spearing (ankle)

Match officials:

Referee: Michael Oliver

Assistant referees: Mick McDonough & David Richardson

Fourth official: Anthony Taylor

When Kenny Dalglish was last in charge of Liverpool, Blackpool were in the old Fourth Division - now the two Premier League teams sit side by side on 25 points.

Dalglish will find many other changes since his last stint in charge of the Reds but their spirited 10-man display in the FA Cup defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford will give Liverpool fans hope that he still retains his golden touch.

Having come away beaten but not bowed from the largest stadium in the Premier League, Dalglish now takes his side to the smallest, Bloomfield Road, in a re-arranged game after their Boxing Day clash was postponed by the weather.

It will be at places like this that Liverpool's season - and Dalglish's future - will be decided. Just one win away from home this season has left the Reds only four points clear of the relegation zone.

Blackpool, who were also knocked out of the FA Cup at the weekend, have the opposite problem - their home form is the worst in the Premier League.

Ian Holloway describes Dalglish as "an absolute hero of mine" but will be going all out for a famous double after the Seasiders' win at Anfield earlier this season, a result which contributed to the premature departure of Dalglish's predecessor Roy Hodgson.

D-day on Merseyside

Today’s match against Manchester United at Anfield will decides Liverpool’s title ambition after losing four on the trot. Some quarters were venting their anger on the manager for the recent bad run of games. Do you think it is fair to blame it solely on Rafa Benitez?

How about the eleven players on the playing field? Aren’t they’re paid to do what they do best on the field?

Leave your thoughts here.

Preview: Liverpool v Fulham

Liverpool V Fulham

Liverpool goes into today's match against the in-form Fulham as joint leaders of the Premier League.

Rafa Benitez has finally moulded a team which can challenge for the league title since 1990. With seven victories out of eight league matches, has shown that Liverpool can secure crucial victories even when not at their best.

Today's match also commemorate Steven Gerrard's 10-year anniversary of his debut for the club. But Rafa Benitez must do without Gerrard for the visit of the Cottagers.

Benitez confirmed: "Gerrard is not fit - he cannot play tomorrow(today).

The Liverpool skipper trained on his own at Melwood today as he battles to overcome a groin injury in time to be fit for the Champions League fixture with Marseille next week.

Meanwhile, Fulham manager Roy Hodgson is delighted Andrew Johnson is starting to live up to the expectation surrounding him as one of the club's most expensive buys.

Dickson Etuhu is in the squad for the first time since his move from Sunderland after recovering from a knee injury and Hodgson has no other injury concerns other than long-term absentee Diomansy Kamara.

And that has prompted Hodgson to make favourable comparisons with Fernando Torres ahead of the trip to Anfield, which is expected to mark the Spain international's return from injury.

Hodgson said: "It's not a gamble to sign a player with such a proven track record. Fernando Torres was coveted for several years by teams playing all over Europe before Liverpool agreed to pay the enormous transfer fee that Atletico Madrid wanted.

Torres and Keane are expected to start for Liverpool tomorrow, with the Reds also boosted by the return of Alvaro Arbeloa from suspension.

Daniel Agger will continue to partner Jamie Carragher in the centre of defence, with Martin Skrtel still sidelined.

Xabi Alonso and Javier Mascherano should start in the centre of midfield with Albert Riera, Yossi Benayoun, Dirk Kuyt and Ryan Babel vying for starting berths.

Kick-off time: 3pm (UK time)

Liverpool held... again!

Fernando TorresAnother lacklustre displays from Liverpool at Riverside Stadium last Saturday. Liverpool's title ambitions suffered another blow when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough. Clearly, this season team's performance has deteriorated with the on-going saga behind the scene between Rafa and the owners.

Liverpool fell behind on the 26th minutes through Goerge Boateng's goal after a defensive error from Alvaro Arbeloa for heading the ball back across Liverpool's goal only for Jeremie Aliadiere to nodded into Boateng's path.

Boro has controlled majority of the match and almost scored the second goal when Downing rattled the post in 67th minutes. Luck was beginning to favour our side as four minutes later after Downing's shot was denied by the post, Torres fired a screamer from 25 yards that beats Schwarzer and went in off the post.

Liverpool piled on the pressures for the remains 20 minutes but their belated show of urgency has reap no reward. Drew in the last 4 matches in a row now and failed to capitalised on Gunners 1-1 draw to Birmingham, means we are still 12 points off Manchester United and Arsenal in the league with a game on hand.

Stevie G's special

Late as usual. The Barclays Premier League 2007/08 (English Premier League) has had kicked off for the past 2 weeks now. Finally, we headed to a winning start to the season away at Villa Park. An own goal from Villa's Martin Laursen and a superb free-kick from Steven Gerrard sealed the match for us.

I missed this match on live telecast and managed to watch the highlight program few days later. The line-ups pretty much the same and our new boy Fernando Torres make his debut but the most significant changes made was the formation, 4-4-2 opted by Rafa instead of 4-5-1 which being used mostly for away matches last season. Rafa did do his homework!

Liverpool lead at half-time, thanks to an own goal from Villa's defender Laursen on the 36th minute. Gareth Barry converted a penalty after Carragher handled in the box on the 85th minute. While Villa fans still celebrating the equaliser, Liverpool had a free-kick just outside Villa's penalty box. Gerrard step up to took the free-kick himself and for the first time in many games, the skipper curl the ball superbly past Taylor's top left hand corner for the winning goal.

Watch the YouTube video of Steven Gerrard superb free-kick, plus goals from Voronin v Toulouse and Torres v Chelsea.
