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.

A low-key opening 45 minutes saw Diogo Jota miss his side’s best chance, with Jurgen Klopp‘s men not quite at the races.

The Portuguese headed Liverpool in front early in the second half, though, before debutant Luis Diaz teed up Takumi Minamino to make it 2-0.

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.
