  • Welcome to The Independent's coverage of all today’s action in the Premier League.

    Vincent Tan, Cardiff City’s maverick owner, has been threatened with a revolt from disgruntled fans of the Welsh club over the way the manager Malky Mackay – whose tenure hangs by a thread – has been treated.

    12/21/2013 12:21:20 PM

  • Things look a bit lonely for poor old Malky Mackay 


    12/21/2013 12:23:30 PM
  • Ten minutes to go until kick off. With the form Luis Suarez is in, feel this could get ugly for Cardiff. 
    12/21/2013 12:36:22 PM
  • The players are out on the pitch now, kick off is minutes away...
    12/21/2013 12:43:29 PM
  • Liverpool 0 Cardiff 0: We're off...
    12/21/2013 12:46:34 PM

  • No prizes for guessing who the least popular man at Anfield is... 


    12/21/2013 12:49:59 PM
  • Liverpool 0 Cardiff 0: Five minutes gone and Cardiff have a corner. Can they capitalise? No. Odemwingie gets caught pushing in the penalty area and Liverpool get a free kick.
    12/21/2013 12:54:09 PM
  • Liverpool 0 Cardiff 0: Liverpool starting to dominate possession here but yet to create a clear goalscoring opportunity. Fairly slow start to the game so far.
    12/21/2013 12:58:00 PM

  • No one rocks leather gloves quite like Vincent Tan 


    12/21/2013 1:01:10 PM
  • Liverpool 0 Cardiff 0: Cardiff have actually had the better chances so far forcing a smart save from Mignolet on the counter.
    12/21/2013 1:04:30 PM
  • Liverpool 0 Cardiff 0: Liverpool have done plenty of nice passing but without really threatening Cardiff. Slightly flat start to this game to be honest. 
    12/21/2013 1:08:44 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 1 Cardiff 0 - Luis Suarez
    No prizes for guessing the first goalscorer. Yes it's the Uruguayan striker and it's a great finish. Suarez volleying a chipped ball into the area from Jordan Henderson into the left hand corner of the net. 
    12/21/2013 1:10:48 PM

  • Jordon Mutch tackles Luis Suarez 


    12/21/2013 1:16:17 PM
  • Liverpool 1 Cardiff 0: Liverpool come very close to doubling the lead twice, first Flanagan nearly squeezes the ball in from a tight angle and then Sterling draws a good save from Marshall.
    12/21/2013 1:25:08 PM

  • Luis Suarez scores the opening goal 


    12/21/2013 1:27:44 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 2 Cardiff 0 - Raheem Sterling
    This is too easy for Liverpool, Suarez breaks through on the counter attack and then just lays it off to Sterling for a simple tap in.
    12/21/2013 1:28:18 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 3 Cardiff 0 - Luis Suarez
    Game over. Suarez makes it three with an excellent finish, picking the ball up on the edge of the area and curling it into the far corner.
    12/21/2013 1:31:18 PM
  • HALF TIME
    Cardiff are in deep trouble at Anfield. 
    12/21/2013 1:32:34 PM

  • Raheem Sterling scores the second goal 


    12/21/2013 1:43:30 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Cardiff 0: Second half underway now...
    12/21/2013 1:49:13 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Cardiff 0: Liverpool very much still on top but it's been a quietish start to the second half.
    12/21/2013 1:58:39 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 3 Cardiff 1 - Jordon Mutch
    Cardiff fight back! Peter Whittingham whips in a free kick from the right and Mutch has a free header at the back post and makes no mistake.
    12/21/2013 2:00:43 PM


  • 12/21/2013 2:03:22 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Cardiff 1: Mutch nearly has another goal for Cardiff, he's unmarked again this time from a corner but he puts the header over the bar.
    12/21/2013 2:04:41 PM

  • Luis Suarez celebrates scoring  


    12/21/2013 2:10:39 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Cardiff 1: Cardiff are making quite a good go of this and at the moment look the more likely to score next. Shame they're still two goals down.
    12/21/2013 2:15:15 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Cardiff 1: Oooh very nearly another goal for Liverpool and Suarez but the striker can only hit the post when trying to turn it in from a tight angle.
    12/21/2013 2:19:02 PM


  • 12/21/2013 2:28:00 PM

  • Liverpool 3 Cardiff 1: We're in to stoppage time now and Liverpool have done enough to close out this win. No surprise that Suarez has been named man of the match.
    12/21/2013 2:35:34 PM
  • FULL TIME - It's a comfortable win for Liverpool who blew Cardiff away in the first half. However the Welsh club fought back in the second with a spirited performance. Liverpool go top of the table.
    12/21/2013 2:38:31 PM
