What to make of VAR changes to offside law in Premier League? (1:49)

Steve Nicol reacts to the Premier League revamping the use of VAR this season. (1:49)

A total of 128 goals or incidents were directly affected by the video ref in the Premier League in the 2020-21 season. But how will VAR perform in the 2021-22 campaign? And who will get the best of the decisions, and the worst of them? So far 23 goals or incidents have attracted the attention of the VAR this season.

In 2019-20, 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.

In 2020-21, it was Burnley and Everton who sat on top of the table, while Arsenal, Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion were most negatively affected. Check out the full 2020-21 season stats.

Here, we run through the league table of overturned decisions for 2021-22 season, and those rejected by the referee at the review screen.
