Kyle Walker posted on Twitter after Manchester City were denied an injury-time winner against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening by VAR – and Spurs fans have replied to the defender’s Tweet.
Walker, 29, starred for City during the enthralling duel, as City took the lead twice only to be pegged back by Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs on both occasions. Despite City dominating, Spurs nabbed a point.
Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero both scored either side of an effort from Erik Lamela, but Pep Guardiola will have been asking why his side were only 2-1 up at the break. Lucas Moura made it 2-2 with his first touch.
Deep into injury time, Gabriel Jesus had a goal disallowed after Aymeric Laporte handled the ball in the build up to Jesus’ strike. It was one of the most-debated incidents of the weekend, and Walker alluded to the decision in his Tweet – posting “Vary frustrating today.”
Vary frustrating today. But both teams fought well. Well done to Spurs. Always good to see the boys and fans pic.twitter.com/b4HJGMJmU1

The 48-time England international clocked up a whopping 229 appearances for Spurs during his time in north London, after first joining the club from Sheffield United back in 2009.
Tottenham fans reacted to Walker’s Tweet and were surprisingly complimentary about the England defender, with one fans claiming Spurs have failed to replace Walker since he left the club two years ago.
Great game Kyle! Wish you were still at The Lane. COYS!
