Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus becomes first Premier League player to have a goal disallowed by VAR
Gabriel Jesus and everyone else on the field thought he had put Manchester City 3-0 up against West Ham until VAR intervened.
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has become the first Premier League player to have a goal ruled out by a VAR review.
City tear West Ham apart
Jesus opened the scoring before half-time against West Ham at London Stadium, with Raheem Sterling putting Pep Guardiola's defending champions 2-0 to the good on the opening weekend. The Brazil international appeared to have settled the contest when David Silva and Sterling unpicked the Hammers to leave him with a tap-in.
Offside by a whisker
But referee Mike Dean was informed Sterling's left shoulder was fractionally offside when he darted on to Silva's pass, leading to roars from the home crowd and disbelief among the City players. City were infamously denied in similar circumstances against Tottenham during last season's Champions League quarter-finals – Sterling thinking he had won the tie deep into stoppage time at the Etihad Stadium before replays showed Sergio Agüero's heel was just offside during the build-up.
