Premier League table without VAR as Man City and Manchester United reality emerges

VAR has continued to be both problematic and controversial since arriving in the Premier League back in 2019.

It was believed the introduction of video technology would help eradicate controversial decisions being made, referees being provided the extra support needed to come to correct decisions when in doubt.

What has materialised has been an alternative scenario, with clubs at the top and bottom of the table suffering from incorrect calls at crucial points of their season.

It was announced on Wednesday that Premier League clubs will have a vote in June over whether to scrap VAR, such has been the ill-feeling the system has created.

The outcome of this vote remains to be seen, though it has been reported that clubs are unlikely to meet the required majority of 14 out of 20 clubs backing the idea.

Some sides have been more fortunate than others when it has come to the technology this term. Liverpool were on the receiving end of VAR's most high-profile mistake to date after seeing a legitimate Luis Diaz goal scored at Tottenham Hotspur ruled out due to miscommunication between officials.

Manchester City's current points tally of 88 would remain intact had VAR not been in use, while Manchester United would be five points worse off on 52. Aston Villa (+7 points) and Fulham (+5 points) have particularity benefitted from VAR, though Wolves (-6 points), Liverpool (-3 points), West Ham -(3 points) and Sheffield United (-3 points) have all suffered.
