An email: “You can see from the photo directly beneath your bizarre statement that Akanji is not in the keeper’s eyeline at all,” writes JA Hopkin. “The keeper’s sight is blocked by his own defender!”

Well, JA, what you can’t see from the photo in question is that Nathan Ake is about 14 yards from goal when he heads the ball and that by the time it crossed the line, Manuel Akanji, who was standing in an offside position, had jumped to allow it directly between his legs. As difficult as it might be for you to believe, Bernd Leno was not in the same place when the ball crossed the line as he was when the photo you refer to was taken. He was directly behind Akanji.

GOAL! Burnley 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur (Maddison 54)

GOAL! Chelsea 0-1 Nottingham Forest (Elanga 48)

Premier League: Conor Gallagher loses possession cheaply, allowing Taiwo Awoniyi to play Anthony Elanga in behind the Chelsea defence with a neat pace. He makes no mistake, sidefooting past Robert Sanchez.

Manchester City 2-1 Fulham: Having seen several replays of City’s second goal, it truly beggars belief that (a) the referee Michael Oliver didn’t clock that Manuel Akanji was offside and interfering with play and (b) his VAR officials arrived at the same conclusion after lengthy deliberations.

Manuel Akanji was standing in an offside position, directly in front of Bernd Leno when Nathan Ake sent a downward header straight at the pair of them. Akanjki jumped in the air, parting his legs so the ball could travel through them and creep into the corner. It looks an astonishingly bad decision, unless Akanji was somehow onside. [Narrator’s voice: “He wasn’t”].

GOAL! Manchester City 2-1 Fulham (Ake 45+5)

Premier League: From a Phil Foden corner, Nathan Ake heads the ball in the Fulham net at the Etihad. There’s a lengthy VAR check, because Manuel Akanji was standing in the middle of the six-yard box, clearly interfering with play (he jumped over the ball) and in Bernd Leno’s eyeline. Somewhat bizarrely, the goal is given. It looks like another VAR shocker and Fulham boss Marco Silva is furious. It’s not difficult to see why.

GOAL! Burnley 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur (Romero 45)

Premier League: Cristian Romero scores with a fine strike that goes in off the woodwork. His goal survives a VAR check for a possible James Maddison offside in the build-up.
