Semenyo can tell his kids he played at Anfield, replacing Ng.

LIVERPOOL TOOK THEIR TIME
But they've been much better in the second half.

ALLY McCOIST PICKS JOTA AS HIS MAN OF THE MATCH
Fair enough. He's a player.

NICE FROM DIAZ
He goes down the left and hits the line, cutting back for Jota; he takes a touch, but his shot is blocked at source.
85'
DIZ IS UP
It was just an impact situation, so he'll be absolutely fine.
83'
LUIZ DIAZ IS DOWN
He jumps with Flint and looks in a lot of pain; gosh, I hope that wasn't the landing. No, it wasn't; Flint landed on him, treading on his knee, so painful but not ligament-rinsing.

GOAL! Liverpool 3-1 Cardiff City (Colwill)
Cardiff win it in midfield and Davies oozes down the left, waiting until the perfect moment to guide a fine pass square, with the outside of his foot, for Colwill ... who takes a touch then, with very little backswing, punishes a low drive past Kelleher! Bedlam behind the net!

Thiago replaces Henderson.

EVERYTHING I'VE HEARD ABOUT AND SEEN OF ELLIOTT
Tells me he's a player. Still, you've got to credit Klopp for sticking him in - other managers might send him on loan or bring him on slowly, but Klopp knows he's good enough already and has a system that works well enough to allow players to settle into it.

GOAL! Liverpool 3-0 Cardiff City (Elliott)
Elliott is back! This is a lovely effort too, moving onto Robertson's cross as McGuinness slips, taking a fine first touch that sets the ball nicely ... for him to swivel an excellent shot across Phillips and into the far corner!

LIVERPOOL KNOCK IT AROUND
Both sides have accepted that this is over.

YEAH THIS IS OVER
And to rub it in for the visitors, it's absolutely having down now.

GOAL! Liverpool 2-0 Cardiff City (Minamino)
Disaster for Cardiff! Liverpool move it down the left, and when the ball comes into the box, both Flint and Ng daydream of a better world, leaving it to each other. So Diaz nips in, robs the latter, wriggles along the by-line and slides a cut-back for Minamino, who has so much time to advance onto it despite the 58 defenders between him and it. He duly powers Liverpool into round five.
