Joleon Lescott has insisted it was the correct decision to allow Michail Antonio's sensational overhead kick to stand despite Manchester City players' animated appeals for a handball in the build-up.

West Ham's Tomas Soucek appeared to handle before teeing up Jarrod Bowen to cross for Antonio, who converted acrobatically.

VAR looked closely at the incident in the build-up to the goal but deemed that no infringement had been made by Soucek.
