VAR came to the aid of Tottenham on Saturday evening, as a late decision against Manchester City handed the London side a 2-2 draw against the odds. Gabriel Jesus's stoppage-time winner was chalked off as Aymeric Laporte was adjudged to have handled the ball in the build-up to the goal.
Aside from the late VAR drama, the game was a perfect advertisement of Premier League football, with assured attacking play from both sides. Manchester City set the tone early on and took a deserved lead with twenty minutes on the clock. Kevin de Bryne lofted a ball to the back post and Raheem Sterling was on hand to head the ball across Loris to nestle at the far post.
Wasting little time, Spurs levelled just three minutes later. Eric Lamela let rip from range and his effort skipped past Ederson for a shock equaliser. Still, Manchester City pushed on to take the lead. de Bryne was the architect again for his side, as he drilled a ball across the Spurs goal. Sergio Aguero was on hand to guide the ball past Loris.
Tottenham levelled the contest for a second time, on the 56th minute. Lucas Moura made an immediate impact from the bench, out jumping Kyle Walker to nod the ball into the net, all within just 26 seconds of his introduction.
Manchester City piled forward in search of a winner and thought they had it when Gabriel Jesus scored in stoppage time. However in scenes reminiscent of April's Champions League epic, however, City was denied a 16th straight league win when VAR spotted a handball by Aymeric Laporte.
