Substitute Gabriel Jesus had an injury-time goal ruled out by VAR as Tottenham Hotspur left Manchester City with a 2-2 draw, scoring with their only two shots on target.
Jesus looked to have extended Man 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 (Aug 17) 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).
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.
