Raheem Sterling thought he had sealed all three points with City’s first shot on target in the 90th minute, reacting quickest to turn in the rebound after Phil Foden’s header was saved, only to be ruled offside by VAR.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men also saw a decision overturned when referee Jon Moss consulted the pitch-side monitor and reversed a penalty and the red card issued to Kyle Walker after he collided with Adam Armstrong.
Both goalkeepers were rarely tested in an even contest, with City’s best chance falling to Ilkay Gundogan who headed Walker’s right-wing cross over from six-yards.
