And Gunners icon Merson was left completely resigned as he sadly congratulated City on moving into pole for the title.
Merson gloomily said live on Sky Sports: “He’s onside! Goal, he’s onside, it’s a goal.
“It’s onside, game over. Game over, it’s a goal. VAR tell Stones, you’re onside mate, it’s 2-0.
“You’ve just won the league. Here we go. What’s the linesman doing?
“To be fair his body looks like it’s offside, fair play he’s well onside in the end.
“2-0, great ball, great header, thoroughly deserved, they should be at least 2-0 up.
“You wouldn’t want to be coming out in the second half here. 2-0.”
