Published

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri fired Liverpool to the top of the Premier League after they thrashed Cardiff City 4-1 at Anfield.

An opener by Salah, a brace by Mane and a goal by Shaqiri helped see off battling Cardiff, whose 77th-minute goal could not do much, on Satuday.

The visitors were already trailing to Salah’s 10th-minute sweeping finish when Mane turned a couple of Cardiff defenders before turning and finishing past Neil Etheridge in the 66th minute.

The Reds dominated for long spells, but Cardiff pulled a goal back with their first shot on target, Callum Paterson steering past Alisson.

But substitute Shaqiri restored the two-goal cushion with his first goal for the club in the 84th minute and Mane chipped Etheridge three minutes after to seal the points.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will stay on top until at least Monday, when Manchester City take on fifth-placed Tottenham at Wembley.
