The Manchester City He took a real game in front of the Arsenal (1-2) to remain firm in the leadership of the Premier League, but did not escape the controversy.

Specifically, the game was decided in two minutes that drove the Gunners crazy against Stuart Attwell, match referee, from whom the London players came out unsatisfied.

The thing already came from before. In the first half, Arsenal claimed what seemed like a clear Ederson penalty on Odegaard, which the referee interpreted as the Brazilian correctly deflecting the ball.

However, the fat came after the break in those two minutes that completely changed the game. It all started with a fall of Bernardo silva in the area that Attwell interpreted as the Portuguese letting himself fall, but at the request of the VAR he changed his decision. Something strange, because although there was a grab from Gabriel, Bernardo brazenly dropped.

Mahrez scored a penalty and, almost immediately, Gabriel, who had received yellow for trying to destroy the penalty spot in the Algerian’s launch, saw the red after blocking with his body an oriented control of Gabriel Jesús, which even more outraged his teammates, who did not understand anything of what was happening in the field and ended up losing in the discount.
