Goals: Wijnaldum 57′, Milner pen 80′

Jurgen Klopp‘s side travelled to Cardiff on Sunday in search of three vital points in their pursuit of domestic glory.

The Reds were the dominant team from the off and had a plethora of chances to hit the front in the opening term, only to be frustrated by some poor finishing and a well-disciplined Cardiff side.

But as shown in recent weeks, Liverpool were up to the task as they hit the front through Gini Wijnaldum, before James Milner added the finishing touches from the penalty spot.

The result ensures the Reds move back to the top of the Premier League table with three games remaining.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on Facebook, Twitter and the This Is Anfield forums.


Fans lauded yet another impressive performance from Matip…
