Liverpool fans have hit back at Ilkay Gundogan, after the Manchester City man complained about VAR following their draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

City only managed to get a 2-2 draw against Mauricio Pochettino's side, after seeing Gabriel Jesus’ last minute strike chalked off.

 

VAR deemed that Aymeric Laporte had handled the ball in the build-up to Jesus’s strike, which offered Tottenham a reprieve.

Gundogan was fuming with the decision, but Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to defend the verdict and hit back at the £20 million midfielder (BBC Sport).

Liverpool’s and City’s rivalry has stepped up over the past year, with both teams challenging so fiercely for the title last term.

Every point is crucial at this stage, so Spurs taking a draw away from City has to be seen as a small boost to Liverpool’s chances of lifting the Premier League, even at this early stage of the season.

Liverpool have taken maximum points so far this term, but they haven’t looked entirely convincing so far.
