Liverpool’s front three finally appeared to be back on form after a 4-1 win over Cardiff today at Anfield. Even Cardiff’s manager predicted the win, saying that Cardiff would almost certainly lose to Klopp’s winning side on home ground. Here’s The Anfield Talk’s Dale (@_evocatio) with the social media reaction…
The first half was quiet with the exception of Mo Salah’s early goal just ten minutes into the match. This early lead put the team in comfortable standings going through the first half. By the time the second half came around there was little in the way of Cardiff’s defence stopping them.
Goals from Mane and Shaqiri came in late on just solidifying Liverpool’s return to form. The only stumble from the home side today was Patterson’s goal that some fans were quick to slate Van Dijk for, although many saw it as a slip up any of the defence would have made.
Could get used to Van Dijk being captain

Just worked out that Shaqiri’s got a goal contribution every 63 minutes so far this season for Liverpool, absolute steal for £13 million.
