Liverpool has again reclaimed their Premier League table top spot after a comfortable 2-0 away win over Cardiff City.
It was a tough challenge, but Jurgen Klopp’s side implored patience dominating a dogged Cardiff side, who had chances of their own to cause an upset.
The Reds broke through Cardiff’s tight pads when Georginio Wijnaldum met Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low corner with a thunderous first-time effort which threatened to break the net.
The visitors got a sigh of relief, and they had to negotiate some nervy moments, most notably a staggering miss by Cardiff captain Sean Morrison, who miscued a header with the goal at his mercy.
Morrison then conceded a penalty after grappling with Mohamed Salah, and substitute James Milner confidently converted the spot-kick to seal victory for the visitors.
While Liverpool heads up with their two-point lead at the top over Guardiola’s Man City, Cardiff remains three points adrift of safety in the relegation area.
