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.

Watch a Liverpool vs Cardiff live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Liverpool vs Cardiff rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. It creates a private connection between your device and the internet, so you can access local streaming services from anywhere.

We recommend ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
