Liverpool, on the other hand, registered a 3-0 victory over arch rivals Manchester United in the Premier League clash at Old Trafford. Reds' skipper Steven Gerrard's two goals from the spot and Luis Suarez's late strike gave the Merseyside club three crucial points.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Cardiff are in poor form, with just three wins in the last 10 games played in all competitions, which includes a 1-0 away win over Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup. Solskjaer's team has a tough task restricting Liverpool's attacking trio of Luis Saurez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling.

The Reds have not lost in the league since the turn of the year.

Liverpool are second in the league table with 62 points from 29 games, trailing league leaders Chelsea by four points. Cardiff are 19<sup>th with 25 points from 30 games.

What the Managers Say

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: "Liverpool have got every opportunity (to win the league). They are in a good position. They have been fantastic the last nine or 10 games, definitely. There are four - Chelsea, (Manchester) City, Liverpool, Arsenal. They all can win it."

Brendan Rodgers: "As a manager, you aim to earn the respect of the players; you don't necessarily need to be liked, just so long as you are respected. I feel really at home here, I can't really think of being anywhere else."
