Live Scores Liverpool FC – Cardiff City (FA Cup 2021/2022, 4th Round)



From the right, Mark Harris brings the ball halfway up the sixteen. Three teammates are a step too late in the box and miss the chance for a dangerous finish.



Mark Harris moves half-right into the penalty area. In a duel with Ibrahima Konaté he falls. The Welshman demands a penalty – but it’s not enough. Referee Andy Madley sees it that way and lets the encounter continue.



A quarter of an hour is played and the hosts hold the reins firmly in their hands. Cardiff City frees itself a bit in these minutes and keeps Liverpool away from their own goal. Nevertheless, the pressure on the second division is still high.



More than 80 percent possession of the ball for Liverpool speaks for itself. The club from the Premier League dominates the encounter. City has not allowed too many big chances so far.



Takumi Minamino puts the ball in the goal. However, the goal doesn’t count because the assist Kostas Tsimikas is flagged for offside. The visiting team from Wales is lucky.



Cardiff City is in their own penalty area with the entire team. The hosts increase the tempo and keep running at the guests. Steve Morison’s team tries not to offer any gaps to the opponent.



Almost 1-0 for Liverpool! Diogo Jota picks up a pass at the penalty spot. He elegantly prevails against Oliver Denham with a quick movement. He immediately looks for a finish, but goalkeeper Dillon Phillips throws himself in the shot just in time and denies the goal.



The guests drive the ball forward for the first time on the right side. Perry Ng brings the leather into the box from the baseline. LFC keeper Caoimhin Kelleher is vigilant and fishes the playground equipment out of the air.



The ball rolls at Anfield Stadium! Can Cardiff City upset Liverpool?


Only in extra time did Cardiff City advance to the next round via Preston North End. Mark Harris scored the decisive goal in the 116th minute. Steve Morison’s team, who took over from Mick McCarthy on Matchday 15, have recently been on the up. After six games without a win, there were two wins in a row against Nottingham Forest (2-1) and Barnsley FC (1-0). Today, however, the coach is bringing up a completely different team. From last Wednesday’s winning eleven only Mark McGuinness, Perry Ng and Will Vaulks are left in today’s starting line-up. He rewards many young players with a starting XI who have recently been ousted by winter signings Jordan Hugill, Alfie Doughty and Tommy Doyle, among others. At the same time, he shows very clearly: The league is currently taking precedence.


In 2022, Liverpool FC has not lost a competitive game so far. In the league, there was a 2-2 draw against Chelsea FC at the start of the year and then two wins against FC Brentford (3-0) and Crystal City (3-1). In the 3rd round of the FA Cup, there was a sovereign 4-1 win over Shrewsbury Town and in the League Cup, Arsenal reached the final. There is also a game almost every three days, so Jürgen Klopp rotates in a few positions today. Compared to the weekend, the team has changed five positions. Caoimhin Kelleher, Ibrahima Konaté, Kostas Tsimikas, Naby Keïta and Takumi Minamino will start for Alisson, Andrew Robertson, Joel Matip, Fabinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.


The clear favorite in this game is of course Jürgen Klopp’s team. With a game in hand, they are second in the Premier League, nine points behind Manchester City. The visiting side from the Welsh capital have other concerns. Cardiff City is fighting for relegation in the English Championship. Just two places ahead of the relegation zone, but still nine points ahead, is Steve Morison’s team. A win against The Reds would truly be a sensation.


Hello and welcome to Round 4 of the FA Cup. Liverpool meets Cardiff City at Anfield. Have fun!
