  • Just a yellow card for Kelleher! The referee has just booked the keeper for his challenge on Harris, but VAR are going to take a look at this and it could be upgraded to a red.

  • GOOOAAALLL! LIVERPOOL DOUBLE THEIR LEAD, IT’S 2-0! Cardiff have an absolute shocker at the back and hand Liverpool a goal on a plate! Diaz nicks the ball on the byline in the penalty area and pulls it back to Jota, who hardly makes any contact on the ball, so it ends it falling to Minamino, who smashes it into the back of the net.

  • GOOOAAALLL! CARDIFF PULL ONE BACK, IT’S 3-1! Colwill with a superb goal to score for the visitors! Colwill wins the ball back initially on the halfway line, before racing forward alongside Davies and he receives the ball back from his team-mate on the edge of the penalty area. Colwill then coolly drills it into the back of the net, out of the reach of Kelleher.
