LIVERPOOL -- Three quick points on Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
1. Liverpool go top and look close to their best
Liverpool went to the top of the Premier League on Saturday and did so with a largely dominant display over Cardiff at Anfield.
The Reds were the only top-five side in action and can sit back and hope rivals slip up over the rest of the weekend.
Sadio Mane scored twice and was joined on the scoresheet by Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri.
