The English Premier League is one of the most famous leagues in the world as well as apart of the top five. It is one of the oldest club competitions with fans all over the world. No wonder clubs like Manchester City, Liverpool FC, Arsenal F.C. know beyond the United Kingdom. As well as there are one of the best players in the world for them, don’t forget top coaches. Interested in what the English Premier League would look like without VAR?
In the past few days, Premier League matches have been played and the topic is again VAR. If you didn’t know VAR is a video assistant referee that helps you evaluate decisions made by referees. But since this technology has been used, many are not happy with it. Among them is Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola. After 12 rounds, the public in England is divided over this technology.
Video technology was again the topic of conversation in the Liverpool – Manchester City match.
The Reds team beat City and made a nine-point difference. Pep Guardiola was again angry over the referee’s decision. Referee Michael Oliver refused to give a penalty to Manchester City in the sixth minute. They then received a goal from the counter from Liverpool. The referee found himself once again in the spotlight when Sterling hit Alexander Arnold in the arm. Michael Oliver didn’t want to call for a foul. At that moment, Pep Guardiola went wild with the judge.
How would the English Premier League look like without VAR
Var was not only a problem in the City – Liverpool match, but a similar situation also occurred at the Sheffield United F.C. – Tottenham Hotspur F.C. match. In that game, VAR canceled David McGoldrick’s goal. At first, the goal seemed to be regular, but VAR found that John Lundstram was in the background at the start of the action. The game ended with a 1: 1 result.
It would be interesting to see the English PSL log standing without the use of a video assistant referee. Only Watford F.C., Aston Villa F.C., Tottenham Hotspur F.C. Also Newcastle United F.C., Liverpool FC would still be in the same place. Nothing would change for them. Other clubs would probably find themselves in another place.
VAR made lot’s of damage to Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C., West Ham United F.C., Everton FC. But it helped clubs like Crystal Palace F.C., A.F.C. Bournemouth, Leicester City F.C. Whether it will help or make the situation even worse for the clubs, we will soon know on soccer 10.
