The Dortmund midfielder charged down Ederson just outside the City box as he was controlling the ball.
Ederson's touch was too heavy however and it allowed Bellingham to nip the ball off his toes and tap into an empty net.
However, the referee judged Bellingham to have fouled Ederson in the build-up and had blown the whistle prior to him scoring. He then booked the 17-year-old following his protests.
Jude Bellingham has the ball in the back of the net vs. Man City... but the referee says no!
The teenager robbed Ederson of the ball, but play was pulled back for a foul. @jjenas8 thinks the hosts got away with one there... :grimacing: pic.twitter.com/hYLhvQojxX

Close up footage has shown Bellingham did not foul Ederson however and if anything, he was the one fouled.
Fans have reacted to the action and they're in utter disbelief at the referee's decision.
This Ref needs checking! ♂️

Bellingham booked as well, for scoring a goal that was wrongly ruled out. Ref struggling so far.

We are witnessing an historically bad refereeing performance here. VAR got him out of trouble once - but he didn't even use it for the Bellingham 'goal'. Woeful #mcfc

City currently lead 1-0 thanks to a Kevin De Bruyne strike.
