Liverpool beat Cardiff to reclaim Premier League top stop
Georginio Wijnaldum’s third goal of the season helped Liverpool climb back above Manchester City at the top of the Premier League
Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League but were made to work hard for victory at relegation-threatened Cardiff City.
The wild celebrations spoke of the visitors’ 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.
Things then got worse for Morrison, who conceded a penalty after grappling with Mohamed Salah, and substitute James Milner confidently converted the spot-kick to seal victory for the visitors.
Cardiff remain in the relegation zone, three points adrift of safety.
Liverpool, meanwhile, restore their two-point lead at the top of the table over Manchester City, who play their game in hand away at Manchester United on Wednesday.(BBC)
