17. Aston Villa – 37 points (two points more, same position)
16. Brighton – 38 points (three points fewer, one position lower)
15. Crystal Palace – 42 points (one point fewer, one position lower)
14. Newcastle – 44 points (same points, one position lower)

2. Man City – 84 points (three points more, same position)
1. Liverpool – 94 points ( five points fewer,same position)
Interesting but that’s about it. VAR is usually correct but when it’s wrong, it’s really wrong. I think a good portion of the problem with VAR is the lack of a call too, which won;t be reflected in this at all.
You can’t read too much into this. If Utd were trailing Wolves longer than they actually did, they may themselves have responded sooner (or Wolves may have choked). It would have changed the psychology and dynamics.
So taking that into account, has it really had much of an effect? Would VAR not be better suited to cups?
