Cardiff manager Malky Mackay made just one change for what could possibly be his last match in charge of the club against Liverpool at Anfield.
Despite it being understood he has received a letter from owner Vincent Tan telling him to quit or be fired, the Scot was at Anfield and brought in Aron Gunnarsson for Fraizer Campbell from the side which beat West Brom.
Liverpool, unsurprisingly, named the same team which demolished Tottenham 5-0 last weekend, meaning Luis Suarez again captain the side the day after signing a new long-term contract with the club.
Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Flanagan, Allen, Lucas, Henderson, Sterling, Suarez, Coutinho.
Subs: Brad Jones, Toure, Agger, Alberto, Aspas, Moses, Kelly.
Cardiff: Marshall, Theophile-Catherine, Caulker, Turner, Taylor, Mutch, Medel, Noone, Gunnarsson, Whittingham, Odemwingie.
Subs: Hudson, Cornelius, Campbell, Kim, Cowie, Lewis, John.
Referee: Lee Probert (Wiltshire)
