SAS were again in fine form as Liverpool won 6-3 during their visit to Cardiff City. Martin Skrtel was also twice in amongst the goals in an exciting game that saw the title challengers go behind twice.
The relegation battlers started well when Jordan Mutch put Cardiff ahead and looked to threaten Liverpool's inconsistent defence. However the visitors quickly equalised in a first half that saw four goals. The story was similar when Fraizer Campbell scored for the Bluebirds in the 25th minute, followed by a Martin Skrtel leveller just before half time.
Skrtel scored again after half time from a corner, followed by a silky back heel from Daniel Sturridge to set up team mate Luis Suarez, allowing him what seemed like all the time in the world to slot in his second of the afternoon. Sturridge then got his share of the goals with 15 minutes to go.
Mutch scored again for Cardiff late on, but the game was just about over in terms of any come back. Suarez however, found himself in front of goal deep into injury time, allowing him to claim his third and final goal, along with the match ball.
Liverpool's side was pretty much the same team who saw off Manchester United last week, apart from Coutinho coming in for the impressive Raheem Sterling. Both Suarez and Brendan Rodgers played down their title chances when they spoke after the game, but Suarez did praise the Reds, admitting that his goals have come easy due to the in-form supply line.
Cardiff did dominate the opening minutes, and showed signs of potential. However, as has been the story a few too many times for the Bluebirds, their opposition came back and were just too strong for them.
Cardiff are away at West Brom next Saturday whilst Liverpool see Tottenham visit Anfield on Sunday.
