    Premier League Preview: Liverpool V Cardiff City

    Maintain dominance after the intervalLiverpool host Premier League new boys Cardiff City as the Kop faithful will be hoping their side can jump Arsenal at the top of the table in this weekend’s early kick off.

    These two sides haven’t met in a league fixture since 1959 in the old Division 2, where Cardiff City produced a 4-0 win at Anfield.

    Brendan Rodgers’ side have been impressive so far this season, with Luis Suarez in fine-form so Cardiff City will have a tough job putting a dent in Liverpool’s title challenge. The 2011/12 Carling Cup defeat to Liverpool on penalties however will be something for Malky Mackay’s men to fight for, in the attempt to get revenge at Anfield.

    The Bluebirds have made a good start to their league campaign in this first half of the season with ex-Man United striker Fraizer Campbell helping his side earn a point against his former club. Cardiff City have only won once this season on the road and have lost half of their away games. Rodgers’ side have more than enough quality to take the game to Cardiff City this weekend and pile the pressure on Arsene Wenger with a jump to the top of the table before Arsenal face Chelsea on Monday night.
