Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table as Sadio Mane scored twice in a 4-1 win over Cardiff at Anfield on Saturday.

Having dominated for so long, the home side had to wait until the 66th minute for their second of the game when Mane thumped a superb left-footed effort past Neil Etheridge.
