SNL Season 44: When will Saturday Night Live come back with new episodes? by Daniel George Liverpool went away as…
A comfortable victory over Cardiff on Saturday saw Liverpool extend his unbeaten race in the Premier League to 10 games. A well-behaved brace from Sadio Mane and goals from Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri earned Red all three points. Here are three things we learned:
Having not acknowledged a goal at Anfield since February 2018, Liverpool looked good at recording a club record 10th consecutive secretly clean sheet against Cardiff. Such hopes were stopped late in the second half, but when a piece of accident – or fortune, depending on your point of view – resulted in Cardiff moving forward Calum Paterson home by Alisson.
Paterson’s goal ended an incredible defensive Running that saw Liverpool did not recognize a goal at Anfield Fort for 918 minutes.
Xherdan Shaqiri retained its excellent form of late by getting to the bench to make its first goal for Liverpool. As a result, former Bayern Munich and Inter-star became the first Swiss player to score goals for the club.
The 27-year-old has received great praise for his impressive performances this season and appears to have become an important figure in Jurgen Klopp’s attacking philosophy. Liverpool’s front three by Roberto Firmino, Mane and Salah – who accounted for three of the club’s four goals of the day – formed what was called “Fab Four” with Philippe Coutinho last season and with the Brazilian who since then left Shaqiri looking out to be the man to get up in his place.

Not Neil Neil The Warnock Cardiff side is currently looking at a drop-zone site and looks like a real blow. Welshman has only won once in his opening 10 matches this season and has looked particularly poor from home.
Positive results can be obtained from the fact that they were able to leverage Liverpool despite the golf in the class between the two sides, but you will know that much improvement is necessary if they are to turn their season around.
