Cardiff 0-2 Liverpool: Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner score to send Reds top of the Premier League

Georginio Wijnaldum struck in the 57th minute to ease Liverpool nerves before substitute James Milner slotted home a penalty with nine minutes remaining after Mohamed Salah had been fouled.

The victory – the sixth successive time Liverpool have won a Premier League game by scoring the winner in the second half – saw them reclaim top spot from Manchester City after the champions had beaten Tottenham on Saturday.

Liverpool now hold a two-point advantage, but the lead could change hands again on Wednesday when City play their game in hand against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
