Cardiff City head to Anfield this weekend eyeing a famous FA Cup upset, but with the Bluebirds struggling for form in the league and Liverpool unbeaten at home this season, it's going to take a massive performance from the Welsh side to knock out the seven-time winners. Liverpool vs Cardiff is free to watch on the ITV Hub (opens in new tab). Make sure you know how to watch a Liverpool vs Cardiff live stream, wherever you are in the world.
With Liverpool still competing on four fronts and the return of the Champions League just around the corner, Jurgen Klopp has opted to give some key players a bit of extra rest against Cardiff today. Kelleher is preferred to Alisson in goal and Tsimikas gets the nod over Robertson at left-back, but there's still space for Van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold, Jota and Firmino. New signing Luis Diaz only makes the bench with Harvey Elliott, who has been out since September with an ankle injury.
Despite taking six points from their last two games, Cardiff are fighting to maintain their Championship status this season and currently sit nine points clear of the relegation zone. Sean Morrison and Max Watters are missing after going off injured in midweek, and Manchester City loanee Tommy Doyle only makes the bench. New signing Jordan Hugill will also have to make his impact as a substitute. The Bluebirds' victory over high-flying Nottingham Forest at the weekend was their first league win since the end of November, so even a Liverpool side that's not at full strength will present a very tough challenge.
Kick-off in this 4th round FA Cup fixture is today, Sunday 6th February at 12pm (GMT) and 7am (ET). Read on for more details on how to watch a Liverpool vs Cardiff live stream, wherever you are in the world.
