Liverpool fans left fuming by Nathan Ake role in Man City goal

Liverpool fans left fuming by Nathan Ake role in Man City goal

Liverpool fans aren't happy at all.

Liverpool fans were left fuming by what Manchester City star Nathan Ake did on Sunday.

Liverpool and City went head to head at Anfield on Sunday in a game that could end up deciding the Premier League title race.

City started the stronger of the two sides before Jurgen Klopp's side enjoyed their own period of dominance.

It was the visitors that broke the deadlock though, with former Everton man John Stones the unlikely goalscorer.

The City centre-back reacted quickest to a clever Kevin De Bruyne corner to stab the ball past Caoimhin Kelleher at the near post.

Pep Guardiola's side had clearly practiced the routine on the training ground.

Stones was able to attack the near post unopposed as teammate Nathan Ake blocked Alexis Mac Allister from covering that area of Liverpool's penalty area.

"Ake setting a screen near post. That’s a hell of a set piece routine," one City fan commented on X.

It's fair to say some Liverpool fans weren't happy about the role Ake played in the goal.

"Nathan Ake clearly blocks Mac Allister!?!? We recently had a goal ruled out against for Endo blocking a man? Where is the consistency in this league!?" one Liverpool fan questioned.

Another complained: "Ake pushing Mac Allister out of the way so Stones can score, but it's only disallowed when it's one of our players who does that, so..."

While commentating on the game for Sky Sports, Gary Neville suggested that the Video Assistant Referee would check the goal to see if Ake was in an offside position when he interfered with Mac Allister.

Replays showed that Ake was not in an offside position when De Bruyne took the corner and so the goal was awarded.
