Solskjaer salutes Liverpool style

Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lauded title-chasing Liverpool and their acclaimed attacking style of football.

Solskjaer's (inset) relegation-threatened team are next up for Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez and company, with Liverpool arriving in Wales as red-hot favourites to keep their winning run going and increasing a prolific goal tally.

Liverpool's 3-0 away victory over Solskjaer's former club Manchester United last weekend underlined their Premier League title credentials and Cardiff must find a way of stopping the Reds, even if league form suggests only one winner today.

"They've every opportunity (to win the league)," Solskjaer said.

"They are in a good position. They have been fantastic the last nine or 10 games, definitely. There are four – Chelsea, (Manchester) City, Liverpool, Arsenal. They all can win it. The (Liverpool) front three have pace, power, movement, and I would say Liverpool might be one of the best counter-attacking teams in Europe at the moment.

"The way they suck teams in and just break on them. They run at every opportunity, so you have to be aware of that."
