Where Man Utd & Man City rank in Premier League table without VAR compared to Liverpool & Arsenal — gallery

How this season’s Premier League standings would currently look without VAR decisions.

Manchester United have four games left in their 2022/23 Premier League run to throw everything at securing Champions League football next season. They are currently fourth on 63 points, just one ahead of Liverpool, who are trying to elbow their way into the top four.

Further up the table, Manchester City have one hand on their third consecutive league title. They lead by just one point but have a crucial game in-hand over Arsenal, who sit in second on 81 points.

There is still a chance each Manchester side could fall short of their desired outcomes, but providing they both continue to pick up positive results, they will be celebrating the completion of their respective missions at the end of the season.

But how would things look for City and United if VAR had not played a part? Let’s take a look at how many points each Premier League side would currently be on without VAR’s decision to award or chalk off goals throughout this whirlwind of a season.
