Posted On March 24, 2014
Liverpool twice came from behind to eventually beat Cardiff City 6-3 in South Wales on Saturday afternoon.
The Bluebirds took the lead through Jordan Mutch on nine minutes, before Reds top scorer Luis Suarez equalised soon after.
Frazier Campbell put the hosts back in front on tweny-five minutes, though Martin Skrtel levelled four minutes before the break.
Skrtel and Suarez each got a second, before Daniel Sturridge put the visitors 5-2 up with fifteen minutes remaining.
Mutch then scored his second with two minutes to play, and there was still time for Suarez to complete his hat-trick.
The Uruguayan has now equalled Robbie Fowler’s record of 28 goals in a Premier League season, with eight games still to play.
Brendan Rodgers’ side remain four points behind leaders Chelsea, though they can close that gap to a single point with victory over Sunderland at Anfield on Wednesday evening.
The Blues thrashed Arsenal by six goals to nil Saturday lunchtime, giving Manchester City the opportunity to leapfrog the Gunners into third with their 5-0 win over Fulham later in the day.
Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Manchester United kept alive their slim hopes of breaking into the top four with wins over Southampton, Swansea City and West Ham United respectively.
