The Reds scored two second half goals against Welsh side Cardiff City to secure three important points in the race to win the Premier League title for the first time in history.

The league title chasers took the lead in the 56th minute through Georginio Wijnaldum off an assist from England international Trent Alexandre-Arnold

Liverpool substitute James Milner converted the resulting 81st minute penalty to give his team a 2-0 win.
