Observations as Liverpool lose their cloak of invincibility at the Etihad

Well... That was a bit shit, wasn't it? Many of us went into the game praying that Liverpool don't lose tonight, and for large parts of the game, it seemed as though the players heard the prayers as Liverpool were largely in their shell. Liverpool needed an Aguero goal at the Etihad (for the zillionth time) to wake up from their slumber. Liverpool equalised with an exquisite move but lost out to a great goal from Sane. The key observations …

Manchester City 2-1 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Manchester City 2-1 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Liverpool have been beaten for the first time in the Premier League this season. It was closely-fought, but Manchester City, the ultimate in title rivals, were deserved winners. The Reds were punished for their first real defensive lapse late in the first half when Sergio Aguero lathered it past Alisson but managed to snatch an equaliser after raising their level just after the hour mark. Supporters may have dreamed of a glorious three points at that stage, but it was …

Reds stutter as superb City end the unbeaten run

That Brexit midfield. That Dejan Lovren. Why? Just why?

Leroy Sane scored the winner for City after Sergio Aguero's superb opener was cancelled out by Roberto Firmino. Liverpool can have no complaints, and from the off, City looked like the side with more …

Player Ratings as City beat Liverpool to close the gap

Lots of talk about City’s injuries in the last few weeks and the difference there was that the Reds missed key defenders, whilst the hosts had Fernandinho back to deliver a Man of the Match performance. Liverpool have played better and worse his season, they’ll walk away rueing a potential Kompany red and the introduction of goal line technology.

Liverpool 2018: The Coppack Awards

Look, this is a bit of a cheat. I’ll admit that. You see, your Anfield Index writers tend to pore over pages of data, argument and counter-argument before committing words to page or screen. That’s not to say that I don’t do the same, but the end of a year allows us to do something else—something which isn’t based on evidence but opinion. Spouting, if you will. Columnist friends tell me that you get one freebie like this every couple …
More to Mo Salah's game than goals

More to Mo Salah's game than goals

The Premier League has seen few goalscorers more prolific than Mohamed Salah. After hitting a record 32 last season, the Egyptian is going strong once again in the Golden Boot race. If he carries on finding the net at the current rate, he'll reach the 25-goal mark before the end of the campaign. The battle for top individual honours with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Spurs' Harry Kane promises to be intense. Salah's ultimate contribution to Liverpool's cause will almost certainly be …
