The LHCb collaboration has provided a plethora of precise measurements of flavour observables in the last years. In the B meson sector some of these results show consistent deviations from Standard Model predictions with a clear tendency to specific New Physics scenarios. B decay anomalies are found in particular related to lepton flavour universality tests and angular observables in Flavour-Changing-Neutral-Current transitions. I review here the LHCb measurements and their experimental caveats. Results from Lattice are crucial in the coming years to verify if these anomalies are explained by QCD effects or if they are unambiguous hints of physics beyond the Standard Model.
