Premier League: Howard Webb believes Man City’s Nathan Ake goal should not have stood.

Howard Webb, the head referee, believes Manchester City’s second goal in their 5-1 win against Fulham on Saturday should not have counted.

City retook the lead through Nathan Ake, but Webb believes an offside position by Manuel Akanji prompted goalkeeper Bernd Leno to hesitate.

“It’s a clear offside situation,” Webb told Match Officials: It’s Mic’d Up.

This season, the PGMOL and the Premier League are providing in-game audio from referees.

“I believe this should have been prohibited from the start.” It appears Akanji had an effect on the goalie, who appears to hesitate,” Webb continued on the debut edition of Match Officials: Mic’d Up, which aired on Sky Sports and TNT Sports.

Webb also claimed that the video assistant referee (VAR) should have given Wolves a late penalty in their season opener against Manchester United.

He also stated that John Brooks’ decision to send Virgil van Dijk off against Newcastle was right.

And Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho’s goal against Arsenal was “rightly disallowed” for offside.

Since its introduction in 2019, the use of VAR technology has been questioned and criticized by managers, players, and pundits across the Premier League.
