Liverpool back on top after beating Cardiff City

Liverpool kept their Premier League title hopes alive by returning to the top of the table with a 2-0 victory at Cardiff City.

The title race swung back towards Liverpool’s advantage thanks to second-half goals by Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner.

Wijnaldum made the breakthrough on 57 minutes when he met Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low corner with a fierce strike.

Sean Morrison had a chance to equalise for the hosts when Alisson missed a cross, but the Cardiff captain was unable to guide the ball into the empty net.

The home side were made to rue that miss when Liverpool sealed their win with nine minutes remaining.

After Mohamed Salah was brought down in the area, substitute Milner converted to seal the victory.

The Reds go two points clear at the top with 88 points from 35 matches, having played a match more than second-placed Manchester City.

Cardiff remain in the bottom three, with 31 points from 35 matches played.
