The most significant improvement Liverpool have made this season is their ability to scrap for points.

Games like this one were where they fell down in the past. They often struggled to find their way past teams who wouldn’t let them play as they wanted to do.

Indeed, the old Liverpool would often crumble when faced with a battle such as the one Cardiff offered them.

This side are the opposite, though. They can play brilliant football but also scrap for the points. It is the latter ability that makes them worthy title contenders.
