Manchester City extended their Premier League title lead over Liverpool to nine points with a 1-0 victory over Everton, but had plenty of fortune in the way.
Phil Foden picked up arguably the three biggest points of his career as City kept their title hopes in their hands ahead of Liverpool’s approach.
But they didn’t do it entirely of their own accord, with “incredible bad luck” putting Everton behind with eight minutes to play.
Frank Lampard’s men were then denied their shot in a dramatic late equalizer when City’s Rodri controlled the ball in his box with his arm.
Premier League rules state that a player’s innings do not count as a handball, but former Man City player and talkSPORT pundit Trevor Sinclair was shocked to see VAR not award a kick.
“That’s why the VAR hasn’t been interpreted correctly and the big clubs make the big decisions,” said the Man City fan.
“I think Manchester City are a great club and the decision is in their favour.”
