Two excellent Luis Suarez goals and a cool Raheem Sterling finish were enough to send Liverpool top of the Premier League—at least until Monday when Arsenal host Chelsea—as the Reds continued their fine form at Anfield to beat Cardiff City 3-1 on Saturday.
The Bluebirds started out in a confident mood, but Suarez opened the scoring via an exquisite volley before setting up a simple tap-in for Sterling and going on to score a beautiful long-range curler for his 19th league goal of the season.
Jordon Mutch’s close-range header gave Cardiff hope and spurred the visitors on to a spirited second-half display, but Liverpool held on to finish comfortable victors and climb above Arsenal in the league table.
