«The goal should have been canceled. It appears that Ake was affecting Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno. The refereeing team could not feel it, but upon reviewing the replay, it is clear that Leno hesitated, wondering if Ake would touch the ball,» Webb said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

In added time in the first half of the game, Manchester City defender Nathan Ake headed the ball into the opponent's goal after a corner kick. The ball passed between the legs of Manchester City's Manuel Akanji, who was offside, and went into the net. The match in the 4th round of the Premier League between Manchester City and Fulham was officiated by a refereeing team led by Michael Oliver.
