Premier League: How badly VAR has affected Liverpool, Man Utd and England’s top teams

Liverpool bemoaned the implementation of VAR once again after their 3-1 defeat to Leicester City. 

Stockley Park failed to notice a foul on Sadio Mane in the build-up to Jamie Vardy’s goal, while also dubiously allowing James Maddison’s equaliser to stand despite Daniel Amartey initially being ruled offside. 

The Reds have been on the receiving end of quite a few questionable decisions already this season, which hasn’t helped their faltering title defence. 

At the very least, it’s banished taunts of ‘LiVARpool’. 

The champions might feel they are particularly hard-done-by – but do they have a point? 

ESPN have listed exactly how badly every Premier League team has been affected by VAR, and it appears Kopites might be onto something. 

Overall so far this season, there have been 80 decisions overturned and just three rejected overturns. So by and large, if a decision goes to the VAR, it’s getting overturned. 

Liverpool have had no fewer than 10 decisions go against them, with just five calls in their favour. But it shouldn’t be forgotten that for all the controversy surrounding the Reds, they are far from the only Premier League team being affected. 

ESPN’s breakdown explains the number of decisions for and against each team and they’ve ranked every club from who benefits the most – Chelsea and Everton – to the club worst hit by the technology.
