Damian and son were a part of the coverage at Anfield for the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League tie with Manchester City on April 4th.

They were pitchside ahead of the game to speak with the talent lineup that includes Gary Lineker, Steven Gerrard, and Frank Lampard. And Liverpool wins 3-0!

After a magical Liverpool night that lived up to every effusive word ever uttered about Anfield, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are now going to have live up to all the hype about them to turn this tie around.

That’s the scale of the task for City in the second leg, that’s how magnificent Liverpool were.

It was amazing to think that the utterly thrashed visitors could be crowned the most commanding ever English champions as soon as Saturday, because it’s been a long time since they have been made to look this callow, this out of ideas, this poor. City’s night started with their bus getting smashed up, and just got worse. The only blemish for Liverpool is the second-half injury to the dominant Mohamed Salah, although Klopp said afterwards the player said he was “fine”. The real key, though, was that Liverpool successfully set a pace that City couldn’t match even when Klopp’s team began to naturally subside.

Damian Lewis: An actor at the top of his game

Damian Lewis’s new film focuses on football. He talks to Kaleem Aftab about sport, politics and the problems of acting with Keira Knightley

The Independent Culture

Football is a funny game with a strange habit of dividing families and testing loyalties. In any other circumstance, Damian Lewis would never dream of highlighting any differences he and his wife, the actress Helen McCrory, have over bringing up their children; indeed they always show the upmost discretion in interviews, but the beautiful game brings out a rarely seen masculine tribal instinct in Lewis.
