How VAR decisions have affected every Premier League club in 2020-21

VAR is back in the Premier League for the second season, complete with an overhaul to fall into line with FIFA protocols. This season, a total of 48 goals or incidents have been directly affected by the video ref.

Last season, Brighton & Hove Albion benefited the most, while only Newcastle United didn't experience a single overturn decision against them all season. Check out the full 2019-20 season stats.

Here, we run through the league table of overturned decisions for this season, and decisions rejected by the referee at the review screen.

Total overturns: 47
Rejected overturns: 1

Leading to goals: 15
Leading to disallowed goals: 17
Penalties awarded: 15 (4 missed)
Pens for handball: 7

Goals ruled out for handball: 1
Goals allowed after wrong handball: 0
Goals ruled out for a foul: 2
Red cards: 5

Mistaken identity: 1

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.
