The biggest games in the Premier League aren’t often played without some sort of controversial incident, and Manchester City v. Liverpool was no exception.
As the first-half was winding down, the hosts were given a penalty-kick after a VAR review called handball on Joe Gomez in the box.
That alone was dodgy enough, but then Kevin De Bruyne stepped up and put the spot-kick wide, despite having Alisson beat.
Bizarre, to say the least!
Take a look at the video below (via beIN/ESPN/Sky Sports):
Lots of controversy today 😅 VAR is consulted on this play. De Bruyne’s cross is deemed to illegally hit Joe Gomez’s arm. Handball, and penalty awarded #MCILIV pic.twitter.com/IMgTU9LUIO
