VIDEO: Alex Iwobi’s Everton should have been awarded a penalty in 1-0 loss to Man City

Phil Foden scored the only goal at Goodison Park to hand Manchester City a 1-0 win against Everton in a Premier League game on Saturday.

The English forward scored the only goal of the game in the 81st minute of the clash.

The clash was without his controversy as Everton were denied a clear penalty in the 85th minute of the game when a Spanish midfielder stopped a ball in the area with his arm.

It is really startling how the referee Paul Tierney and the VAR guys missed the important call.

Here watch the controversial decision.

Angry Frank Lampard called the miss incompetence at its best.

“I have a three-year-old daughter at home who could tell you that was a penalty,” said Lampard on missed call

“It is incompetence at best, if not that then someone needs to explain what it is.”

Pep Guardiola said it was offside during his post-match interview.

“It was offside. Your seats were not good,” said Pep Guardiola on Everton handball claims.

Not sure what Pep Guardiola was talking about as the official clearly confirmed Richarlison wasn’t in an offside position but just bottled the penalty call.

Super Eagles attacker Alex Iwobi was on the pitch until the 88th minute.
