Ranking the Premier League clubs by who was most affected by VAR in 20-21

We've sorted every Premier League club from who has profited the most to who has had the most decisions go against them when VAR has reversed an on-field judgment,


Note that we only included data for overturned decisions; we didn't include VAR referrals that upheld the officials' initial decisions. 


+5 for Burnley 

During the 5-0 loss to Manchester City, VAR saved goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell from extra misery when his own-goal was ruled out due to Gabriel Jesus being offside. 


After Granit Xhaka was sent off for harsh behavior on Ashley Westwood, they also enjoyed a one-man advantage over Arsenal.

+4 Fulham 


Bobby Decordova-goal Reid's was disallowed for offside against Aston Villa, but Sheffield United scored a late equalizer from the penalty spot when Aleksandar Mitrovic fouled Jack Robinson. 


Aboubakar Kamara came in as a substitute against Crystal Palace, but was sent off after a VAR review for a foul on Eberechi Eze. 


VAR appeared to have saved Fulham against West Ham, but Ademola Lookman's penalty in injury time was missed. 


VAR handed them another penalty against Leicester City, which Ivan Cavaleiro converted with ease. 


When Adam Lallana of Brighton and Theo Walcott of Southampton both had goals against Fulham disallowed by VAR, Scott Parker was relieved.

Everton is favored by three points. 

Everton had a fantastic start to the season, both on and off the field, with three VAR judgments in the first five league games. 


After being first ruled out for offside, VAR awarded Dominic Calvert-equalising Lewin's goal against West Brom. 


After a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, the Toffees were awarded a dubious penalty after Joel Ward was ruled to have handled Lucas Digne's takedown. 


Jordan Henderson's late goal was ruled out for offside by VAR during Everton's game versus Liverpool. 


In 2020-21, the first VAR judgment that did not go in their favor came against Chelsea, when a penalty was called back due to offside. 


Chelsea is up by two points. 

Andreas Christensen was sent off for pulling down Sadio Mane during Chelsea's 2-0 loss to Liverpool, despite receiving a yellow card. 


Chelsea felt they had conceded a second penalty against Everton when VAR intervened and annulled the penalty because of an offside call. 


Wolves were also given a penalty, but the referee overturned his decision after examining the incident on the pitchside monitor. 


Tammy Abraham's consolation goal against Arsenal was first called out for offside, but after a VAR review, it was allowed to stand. 


The Blues were originally given a penalty after Jonny Evans fouled Christian Pulisic, but VAR overturned the decision.
