Mission 'virtually imposible' as City go to Anfield

Last updated : 27 October 2018 By Michael Morris

Cardiff City face the daunting prospect of facing a Liverpool side at Anfield today who are unbeaten in the League so far this season. The Reds have won seven out of nine games with the only dropped points coming from draws against Man City and Chelsea.

Neil Warnock declared the mission 'virtually impossible'.

"It is virtually impossible for any team in the current game. Their front three is probably the best front three in the world," said Warnock.

"We've all got to play at the top of our potential to give them a good game and hope they have an off day."

But he added: "I think we can go there and cause problems."


Warnock will come face to face with Jurgen Klopp, and the German can't wait to meet Cardiff City's 'unbelievable' manager.

"I am really looking forward to meeting him. I heard a lot about him, and he's obviously vocal-wise very talented" said Klopp.

"It will be a big pleasure to meet him - not sure during the 90 minutes, but before and after I'm sure.

"It would be so cool if that's the truth (If it was virtualy mpossible for Cardiff to win), but it's not and they will try everything.

"He is one of the most experienced managers in the world of football, and so successful in the past - it's unbelievable.

"We are aware of the quality of Cardiff. Cardiff and Neil Warnock are famous for the way he plays. Last week gave them for sure a big boost, 100 per cent, but before that they were not bad.

"They deserve all our respect and they will get it."
