The eyes of the football world will be on Wales this afternoon

The eyes of the football world will be on Wales this afternoon as Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City seek to pull off the biggest shock of the Premier League season.

Millions of Liverpool fans from across the globe will be tuning in to see if their team can avoid a Cardiff banana skin and overtake Manchester City again in the race for the Premier League title.


It’s advantage Pep Guardiola and his team once more after their 1-0 win over Spurs on Saturday, but Liverpool can go back top with expected victory in South Wales.

But, of course, it’s not as simple as that. The Bluebirds need points to haul in relegation rivals Brighton and roared on by a fervent 33,000 Cardiff City Stadium crowd they will be up for the fight.

It would be wrong to say the Bluebirds are the biggest outsiders in Premier League history to win a particular game, but they’re close to it.

The bookmakers rank Cardiff as 17-1 against to produce a David versus Goliath upset, with Liverpool 1-5 ON to win and the draw at 6-1.
