Liverpool beat Cardiff City 6-3 on Saturday afternoon.

It was a case of anything Chelsea can do, we can do, too, as Liverpool scored six on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds' 6-3 victory over Cardiff City saw them keep pace with Jose Mourinho's men, and climb three points clear of Arsenal.

Cardiff twice took the lead, first through Jordon Mutch and later courtesy of Frazier Campbell, but Luis Suarez leveled the first time and Martin Skrtel did the same to make it 2-2.  

From there the visitors took control, with both Suarez and Skrtel completing braces before Daniel Sturridge got in on the action.

Mutch grabbed a second of his own before Suarez completed his hat-trick in the last minute, equaling Robbie Fowler's record of 28 league goals in a season in the process.
