Premier League Table Without VAR Decisions This Season Posted Online

A Premier League table of how the top-flight would look without VAR involvement has been posted online.

The technology has sparked much debate and caused outrage since it was introduced this season.

But a table posted online reveals there would not be much difference even if VAR had not been a regular fixture.

The table takes into account all Premier League fixtures before this weekend's games.

Liverpool seemed to get a slice of luck from VAR on Saturday when James Tomkins had a goal ruled out for Crystal Palace.

That led to 'Li-VAR-pool' trending on Twitter and talk on social media that there was a conspiracy to hand Jurgen Klopp's side the league title.

But actually the Reds would have still had 34 points out of a possible 36 before this weekend, according to the non-VAR table.
