Only 67 games have been played in the 2022–23 Premiership season, but the impact of VAR judgments is already being seen. The video ref will yet again be criticised by Arsenal supporters, while others from other top teams will be happy to see it still in use.
For Liverpool, Man United and Chelsea in Premier League it’s a different situation as they fall down the standings lacking VAR rulings in their favour.
The Premier League’s VAR judgments are being examined, just as we did last season, to determine whether they may have had an impact on game results.
It goes beyond how frequently a club receives a positive VAR call or the amount of scores are impacted. Whenever these VAR judgments are made, how they may have affected the game’s outcome, and most importantly, whether that influence would have affected the total result, are what matter most.
VAR In Premier League Affecting Match Results:
Introducing the VAR Impact Table from ESPN. We evaluated the potential impact of each of the 94 VAR decisions made within Premier League thus far this campaign. We’ll keep tabs on VAR all through the campaign to determine the real winners and losers.
Since the approach assumes that any following VAR incidents wouldn’t have occurred because the game’s entire course has been changed, we only evaluate the first VAR overturning in each game.
When a shot is rejected for offside, the VAR judgement is overturned to reflect the initial on-field ruling. When a penalty is overturned, it is still regarded as having been given and converted unless the club in issue has a season-long penalty conversion rate under 50%. For example, this year, West Ham, Crystal Palace, and Spurs have all have scored nothing from the penalty mark. A penalty may well be deemed missed if it falls under 50%. The goal is rejected if a team received a score as a result of a penalty or perhaps an inaccurate offside by VAR.
