Senegalese forward scores twice as 4-1 win over Cardiff City to give Reds top spot in the Premier League

Sadio Mane scored twice as Liverpool beat Cardiff City 4-1 to extend their unbeaten start and go top of the Premier League table.

The Reds opened the scoring when Mohamed Salah scored his fifth PL goal of the season after he was quickest to react to Georginio Wijnaldum's blocked shot.

Cardiff's Sean Morrison had a goal disallowed for offside, before Mane doubled Liverpool's advantage when he smashed the ball into the far corner on 66 minutes. 

Liverpool conceded their first PL home goal of the season when Callum Paterson netted from close range on 77 minutes.

Late goals from Xherdan Shaqiri and Mane wrapped up the win, moving Liverpool three points clear of Manchester City, who play Tottenham Hotspur on Monday.

Cardiff are 17th on five points.
