Liverpool have moved to the top of the Premier League table after beating Cardiff City 3-1 at Anfield today.

The Reds had a week to remember as star striker Luis Suarez signed a new four and a half year deal, while Cardiff had a turbulent week as rumours surfaced that manager Malky Mackay was handed an ultimatum by owner Vincent Tan. 

Despite all the Rumours, Mackay was in the away dugout, but it did little to lift his side, as Liverpool took control of the game from the first minute. 

David Marshall made a number of saves before Suarez opened the scoring after 35 minutes. Jordan Henderson dinked a cross from the left which was volleyed into the bottom corner by the Uruguayan.

On 42 minutes, Suarez then turned provider as he squared a one on one to Raheem Sterling who passed the ball into an empty net.

And just a day after he signed a new four and a half year deal, Luis Suarez wrapped up the points on the stroke of half time. Henderson once again set him up, this time with a delicate back heel, which was then curled into the far corner.

There was a bit more spirit from the visitors in the second half, and Jordan Mutch pulled one back with a free header after 57 minutes, but the Reds held one for a big win.
