How VAR decisions have affected every Premier League club

Pep Guardiola says it’s natural for there to be growing pains in the Premier League’s first season using VAR.

VAR arrived in the Premier League this season but, despite much debate about how much it is impacting on the game, so far only seven goals have been directly affected by the video ref.

VAR in the Premier League: Ultimate guide

Here, we run through the league table of overturned decisions. Who will benefit most over the course of the Premier League season?

What will the VAR review?

– Goal/no goal

– Penalty/no penalty

– Direct red card (not second yellow card/caution)

– Mistaken identity (when the referee cautions or sends off the wrong player)

What will it not review?

– Any yellow card (including second yellow card leading to red)

– Any free kick offence outside the box (other than red card offence)

This relates purely to overturned decisions, so penalty appeals that stay with the on-field referee are not included.
