This Laporte vs Dembele incident had plenty of City fans fuming, with the defender claiming that he had been fouled by goal scorer Moussa Dembele in the buildup. Pundit and former defender Rio Ferdinand seemed to think that Dembele did foul Laporte. City players also thought Toko Ekambi was offside, but his dummy allowed Dembele to progress and score

    Lyon’s second goal was definitely a foul!! BUT it was a foul on Dembele by Laporte!! Look at how Laporte crosses over at the last second, deliberately I would say, and blocks Dembele and this is why he got clipped. If he had maintained his straight course he would not have got clipped

    No foul

    Think Laporte changed direction (presumably to ensure the other Lyon player remains offside), and gets clipped by Dembele, albeit not intentionally. Dembele seems to have his eyes on the ball.

    Absolutely right – Laporte changes direction suddenly and Dembele runs straight and looks at ball.
