Leicester City fans have criticised the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) and Paul Tierney for not sending off Ederson for his alleged foul on Kelechi Iheanacho in Manchester City’s 1-0 win at King Power Stadium.

The Nigerian, who was making his ninth Premier League appearance of the season, in his effort to head home James Maddison’s pass, got allegedly punched in the face by the Citizen’s goalkeeper and needed quick medical attention before leaving the pitch.

Iheanacho, however, did not return for the second half. He was replaced by Harvey Barnes and the Foxes were later tamed by an 80th-minute strike by Gabriel Jesus.

Incensed by referee Tierney and VAR’s decision not to issue a red card to Ederson earlier, a decision that could have seen a different result, they took to social media to express their rage.
