Keita In Midfield, Sturridge To Start? | 4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup Vs Cardiff City

Liverpool will travel to Wales to face off against Cardiff City on Sunday at the back of a convincing 4-1 thrashing of FC Porto in midweek. The Reds are flying high at the moment and would be desperate to grab all three points from this encounter. However, the Welsh outfit are currently fighting for their Premier League lives so it won’t be easy to get a win against such a dangerous team.

Jurgen Klopp might choose to opt for a 4-3-3 formation with Naby Keita set to start in midfield.

4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Cardiff City


Alisson Becker will once again lineup in goal for the Merseyside outfit as he attempts to keep another clean sheet in the Premier League. The defensive duo of Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip should continue to operate at the heart of Klopp’s backline as they try to keep things stable at the back versus the Bluebirds.

Trent-Alexander Arnold will play in the right-back position while Andrew Robertson looks to put in another tireless shift down the left flank. 

Dejan Lovren is a significant doubt for this game, but Joe Gomez should be available for selection from the Liverpool bench.

The Reds have been the best defensive team in the English top-flight this season. Hence, Klopp would hope that his defenders can continue their stellar record at the Cardiff City Stadium.


The dynamic trio of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will feature at the middle of the pitch. They will try to dictate play and establish Liverpool’s dominance in midfield.

Both James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum will start on the bench and might come on during the encounter if required. However, Adam Lallana will be in a race against time to be fit for this clash at Cardiff.


Liverpool’s front three will be comprised of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah operating on the wide areas while Roberto Firmino plays down the middle in the ‘False 9’ position.

All three players scored in midweek against FC Porto which would give them a lot of confidence heading into this weekend’s clash. Both Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge might come off the bench to make an impact in the second half if needed.
