Manchester City were able to record a 3-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon but it didn’t come without yet more VAR drama.
City looked good value for their victory but it could have been more comfortable if the visitors were given a penalty for a challenge on David Silva.
The Spaniard went down under a challenge from Jefferson Lerma but the video assistant referee judged that it wasn’t a foul, thus no penalty was given.
Despite being 2-1 up at the time, supporters of Pep Guardiola’s team still weren’t happy as VAR were again against City after their disallowed goal against Tottenham a weekend previous.
One supporter claimed that it was a joke whilst a further individual labelled it corruption. It was even said that the decision was rigged.
Fortunately for City fans, however, it wasn’t to matter as they still came away from the Vitality Stadium with three points.
Sergio Aguero notched a brace whilst Raheem Sterling also got on the scoresheet.
Here’s some of the reaction from Twitter.
Var is a joke
