Manchester City Denied The Most Blatant Penalty Of The Season, No VAR Check Involved

Manchester City were denied the most blatant penalty of the season against Burnley this evening.

Pep Guardiola's side won 2-0 at Turf Moor to move three points clear at the top of the table but there was mass confusion as to how they were not awarded a spot-kick in the second half.

After a flowing team move, James Tarkowski clearly clipped the foot of Gabriel Jesus inside the area.

The Brazilian went down theatrically and replays showed that there was clear contact from the England defender. However, much to City's frustration, there was not even a VAR check and play continued.

Given the soft penalties that were given in last night's games, City fans were absolutely fuming with the decision.

City's routine win was achieved through goals from Jesus and Raheem Sterling in the first half, with the Blues now having won 13 consecutive games in a row in all competitions.
