Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus became the first player to have a goal disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in the Premier League during the defending champions’ opening game at West Ham United on Saturday.

Jesus thought he had scored his second of the match to make it 3-0 for City in the 53rd minute when he finished off Raheem Sterling’s pass following a fine move. However, the VAR adjudged that Sterling was marginally offside as he ran into the box.
