Man City have been held to a 2-2 draw by spurs  after an intervention from VAR ruled out what had appeared to be a last-gasp winner from Gabriel Jesus  at the Etihad Stadium.

Despite being outclassed by City for much of the game, Spurs had twice come from behind as goals from Erik Lamela  and Lucas Moura  – 19 seconds after his introduction – cancelled out efforts from Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero.

Jesus thought that he had earned City a deserved three points when firing home in the second minute of added-on time, only for VAR to rule that Aymeric Laporte had handled the ball in the build-up.

The decision leaves each of City and Spurs two points off the pace after Arsenal and Liverpool got the better of Burnley and Southampton earlier on Saturday.
