Liverpool FC travel to Cardiff City on Sunday for a Premier League fixture that has massive implications at both ends of the table. Liverpool still a top the standings, but by only two points over Manchester City, who have a game in hand on them.

Cardiff currently sit in the final relegation slot, only two points behind Brighton & Hove Albion, but the Seagulls do have a game in hand on them. So there is a lot to play for on Sunday, but for just totally different reasons. Liverpool are also still alive in the UEFA Champions League competition, where they have advanced to the semi-finals, set to take on Lionel Messi on Barcelona.

Klopp maintains that the massive workload of a long grueling season is not fatiguing his players. He says they are good to go for the final stretch.

“We do what we can to train in exactly the right way,” Klopp told his prematch news conference on Friday. “If you go for a big goal, you don’t feel any tiredness.

“It’s like a marathon. If you are 40 kilometres in and out in front you don’t think about the 40, only what’s to come. That’s rather how we feel in the moment.”

Let’s take a look at who Reds boss Jurgen Klopp may select in his first team for this one.
