Liverpool legend Graeme Souness can’t pick out any weakness in Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasing squad.

The Reds ran away 2-0 winners in South Wales against Cardiff thanks to goals from Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner as they returned to the summit with three games left to play.

Klopp’s men overcame terrible pitch conditions in the build-up to the win with both goals coming from set pieces in the second half.

However, former manager and skipper Souness praised the mentality of the team in what he feels was a crucial win.

“If you’re going to be champions you’ve got to deal with the challenges that come along in many different ways,” he told Sky Sports.

“I think today they looked like a composed, polished team. They were patient, they didn’t try and force it. It wasn’t a great pitch to play on, playing under a lot of pressure and I thought they were fabulous.

“OK, they weren’t at their slick passing best but they were still a fabulous team today and I think they showed a maturity as well – ‘we believe in what we’re doing, we’re not going to rush this and eventually someone will come up with something for us’ – and that is how it panned out.

“They were very polished today.

“I think they’ve got over their nervy moments, they certainly had them against Spurs and a couple of games before that. I think they’ve dropped that now, I think they’re playing with composure and a belief.

“They should be, they are a team without a weakness. If you’re setting up against them, where do you think you can expose them? I think you’re struggling to come up with any weaknesses in their team.”
