Arsenal fans urged Ben White to play John Stones for Man City’s goal
Arsenal fans were not impressed with the manner of Manchester City’s second goal at the Etihad Stadium.
With Kevin De Bruyne giving City an early lead, Pep Guardiola’s side looked to take control of the game and dominated in the closing stages of the first half.
De Bruyne’s free-kick was deflected into the box and found John Stones, who headed it firmly past Aaron Ramsdale to make it 2-0.
Celebrations were initially interrupted as the decision was reviewed by VAR, leading to anxiety and confusion among the visiting fans.
However, the Stones were indeed out, deciding that goal was accomplished.
Arsenal defender Ben White was adjudged responsible for playing Stones out and putting the match firmly in City’s hands.
However, some Arsenal fans are convinced that White was pushed out of his position, which led to Stones being in place when the ball was played.
One supporter asked: “Has Ben White been pushed to be in the Stones?”

Things got worse early in the second half, with Haaland and De Bruyne combining once more to put the Belgian star 3-0 up.
Rob Holding pulled one back but it was only a consolation as Haaland made it 4-1 in stoppage time.
