(Video) Should VAR have ruled out this goal from Nathan Ake?

Manchester City lead Fulham 2-1 at half-time following a Nathan Ake goal.

However, the goal has been labelled controversial as pundits and Mike Dean (of all people), claim VAR should have ruled it out.

The argument is that Akanji is offside and in the line of sight of Fulham’s Leno.

VAR took time to review the goal and concluded that it would stand.

The goal came from a Foden out-swinging corner. As Ake heads it towards the goal, Akanji allows it through is legs. Some are claiming that it interferes with Leno and therefore should be disallowed.

My opinion? Corner well taken; lovely header. Slight bit of luck.
