Liverpool 3-1 Cardiff
Premier League, Anfield
February 6, 2022
Goals: Jota 53′, Minamino 68′, Elliott 76′; Colwill 80′
The Reds were looking to reach the fifth round and a home tie against Norwich, following a two-week break from action.
The returning Harvey Elliott fired home his first-ever Reds goal in front of the Kop in what was a special moment to round off the afternoon.
Some hailed a triumphant return to action…
Lots of positives. Liverpool weren't fantastic and nor did I expect them to be, but Elliott looked superb, Diaz gets an assist and Taki keeps his great cup run going

Full-time. #LFC 3-1 #CCFC. Jota, Minamino and Elliott the scorers, promising debut from Diaz, scary but survived moment for Kelleher. Took a while to get going properly but good to see the Reds score so many when Salah and Mané are busy elsewhere. Norwich (h) next in this cup.

“YNWA it’s gonna be a good season” – Tim Dabrowa on Facebook.
Elliott back and scoring.
Diaz debut and assist.
Minutes in the legs.
Bar that cruel prank that was played on Milner costing a goal, largely a perfect afternoon's work.

Some way to introduce yourself at Anfield, Luis Díaz. That close control one the line was insane.

Brilliant pressing then quick feet work by Luis Diaz! First assist already.

Elliott has been out injured for months and returns with a touch and finish like that. He’s unreal.

What a special moment that is. He has some career ahead of him

Harvey Elliott will be a Liverpool club legend in 15 years time. I’ve never been more confident.

I haven’t cheered like that in ages!! Get in there, Harvey!!! He’s some player! Him and Diaz lit up Anfield as soon as they came on #LIVCAR

Job done. Much better 2nd half.
The best thing was how many options we had off the bench.
Still got one or two more to come back, I think…

The squad & the options available now are a far far cry from the days of Igor Biscan & Ragnar Klavan #LFC
