Cardiff 3-6 Liverpool

Liverpool continued their season of great goal scoring with their sixth win in a row by smashing Cardiff City 6-3.

Suarez was at his brilliant best again on Saturday marking his third hat-trick of the season and with with just eight matches to play, Liverpool find themselves firmly in the race for a first league championship since 1990, being just four points behind the leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.  

Suarez and Sturridge (SAS) are the most prolific strike force in Europe, with Suarez now having scored 28 times this season.

Brendan Rodgers said:

“Luis is a remarkable player who has terrific determination, desire and will and he gets his rewards. He is world class player who is enjoying his football.  Look at the runs he makes and the determination to get himself back into position when he doesn’t get the ball.

Daniel (Sturridge) also shows that great desire. He’s strong and he worked so hard to get into the box to get on to the end of Luis’ cross. The back heel for Luis’ goal was outstanding too.

Wednesday will be a great night for us. We have five games at home and three away and for us it is about the immediate future.  The fans can believe in dreams and when you see your side score six goals, you are allowed to do that.”

Defending seems to be the only problem with the Reds now and I wonder whether the carelessness at the back is due to the overconfidence the defenders have on the attacking capabilities of  front duo Suarez and Sturridge. Even though it wont be much of a problem against the lesser sides, Rodgers should make sure Liverpool don’t take this attitude when they welcome the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City which are going to be crucial matches if we want to win the title.
