Manchester United Have Had More VAR Decisions Overturned In Their Favour Than Any Other 'Big Six' Side

Manchester United Have Had More VAR Decisions Overturned In Their Favour Than Any Other 'Big Six' Side

Manchester United have had more VAR decisions overturned in their favour than any other so-called "big six' side in the Premier League this season.

In United's 1-1 draw with West Brom on Sunday, the Red Devils felt aggrieved after a penalty awarded for Semi Ajayi's challenge on Harry Maguire was overturned by Craig Pawson when he watched the incident on the pitch-side monitor.

Speaking after the game, an angry Maguire claimed VAR decisions have been going against United.

"I was certain it was a penalty, I don't understand why he (Pawson) has even gone to the monitor," the United skipper told I felt a tug on my shoulder, it was slight, but there was also a clip on my heels and I was confident it was going to be given as a penalty.

"But it seems decisions are going against us at the minute, although we can't rely on VAR decision, we've got to do more in the game."

However, the stats would appear to debunk the claims from Maguire. As published by ESPN, no other team from the big six has had more VAR calls overturned in their favour.

Some of the key calls include Jan Bednarek's controversial sending off in the 9-0 thrashing of Southampton and the penalty given after the full-time whistle was blown against Brighton.

In a separate interview with United's MUTV channel, Maguire also aimed a dig at Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool for comments made about the amount of penalties they were receiving.

"Ever since other people from other teams spoke about us we've had absolutely nothing from the referee or VAR," he said.

"At the moment we're playing without them so we've got to make sure we're not leaving the game in the hands of the referee or the VAR."
