Jesus looked to have extended City's winning Premier League run to 16 games with an effort on the stretch, but a handball in the lead up by Aymeric Laporte meant Spurs benefited from VAR again, just four months after their historic Champions League quarter-final at the Etihad.

City went ahead on Saturday evening through Raheem Sterling's deft far-post header from a superb Kevin De Bruyne cross (20), but Spurs were soon level as Erik Lamela's low, curling effort from 20 yards found the bottom corner (23).

Lo Celso arrives ahead of £55m Spurs move

Lo Celso arrives ahead of £55m Spurs move Giovani Lo Celso has arrived in London to complete a £55m move to Tottenham from Real Betis, Sky Sports News understands. The Argentina international will have a medical before completing the deal, which could rise to £60m. Betis did not include the 23-year-old in their squad for a friendly against Las Palmas on Wednesday night. If completed, the transfer would become Spurs' second-biggest signing - behind Tanguy Ndombele, who cost them £63m from Lyon earlier this summer. Spurs have also held talks with Sporting Lisbon over midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

OK, let's get to the point . Was the decision correct? The ball did touch Llorente's arm en route to being the decisive goal that helped Tottenham eliminate Man City from the Champions League. What about the fact that, of the various camera angles at the VAR 's disposal, Cakir wasn't shown the one

Wednesday's clash between Tottenham and Manchester City had a little bit of everything but, following a flurry of early goals, plenty of tense moments and After topping Manchester City 1-0 at home in the opening leg, Spurs edged the Premier League champions on away goals after a drama -filled match.

The champions went into the half ahead through Sergio Aguero's sweeping close-range finish, again from De Bruyne's wondrous right-wing delivery (35), but Spurs levelled again through Lucas Moura's header, his first touch after being subbed on (56).

Aguero and Pep Guardiola looked to be involved in a heated argument as the striker was subbed off with 25 minutes remaining for Jesus, but the manager's decision looked to be vindicated - until the Brazilian's late effort was ruled out.

How Spurs and VAR frustrated City

City players wore No 19 Leroy Sane shirts in the warm-up in support of the injured German winger, but his absence did not impact the hosts in the first half as De Bruyne stole the show.

Spurs struggled to get out of their half early on as City had a shout for a penalty turned down when Lamela shoved Rodri, but the visitors were soon punished. De Bruyne's first-time cross from the right was expertly tucked home by the head of Sterling, arriving unmarked at the back post for his fifth in three games.

Spurs equalised against the run of play as Lamela found the bottom corner, thanks to some suspect positioning from goalkeeper Ederson, but besides that City had the best of it, reducing Harry Kane to just one touch in the final third in the first half.

The De Bruyne show then continued. Picking up the ball on the right, the Belgian's fierce, low cross found the arriving Aguero to touch home past Hugo Lloris from a few yards.

City lay siege on Spurs' goal after the break as Lloris saved from Oleksandr Zinchenko and then Bernardo Silva, who should have done better from close range, but with only their second shot on goal, Spurs levelled as Moura nodded over Ederson from a Lamela corner.

The hosts then hit the bar through Bernardo Silva's hooked rebound from 15 yards, while Aguero looked annoyed at Guardiola as he was subbed off for Jesus, who went close with a header in the closing stages.

Jesus then thought he had won it, sweeping home on the stretch from eight yards through a crowd of players, but the Etihad's delirium turned to despair as the VAR informed Michael Oliver that Laporte had handled in the build-up, sending Spurs fans into raptures just seconds after some travelling supporters had turned to leave the stadium.

City fans were critical of the decision after seeing the incident on the big screens at the Etihad, while Spurs fans were singing "VAR, my lord, VAR!" for the second time in five months at this ground as they escaped with a draw that must have felt like a victory.

Managers

Pep Guardiola: "I thought we left that situation in Tottenham in the Champions League last season. But it is the same. The referee and VAR disallow it. It's the second time [it's happened] - it's tough. It's honestly tough but it's the way it is.

"It happened last week with Wolves and we saw for Chelsea on Wednesday - the keeper wasn't on his line - Adrian in the penalty shoot-out. They have to fix it.

"It was incredible it wasn't a penalty in the first half [for the foul on Rodri in the box] but VAR said it wasn't and then at the end they did. I'm pretty sure people were happy today, we just need to work harder at scoring our chances."

Should City 'winner' have been ruled out?

Mauricio Pochettino: "I am in love with VAR. I wasn't agreeing with it from the beginning when we started talking about it, but sometimes you get the benefit like today or in the Champions League.

"We can't stop the evolution of the technology, but it's difficult because we love football from 30 years ago when it was only the referee's decision. Some unfair things happened but across a season, you find a good balance.

"We are living in a different era, technology is in football now and we have to accept today it's a benefit for us, it will be against us and we have to accept it with patience and a good face.
