How the Premier League table would look if VAR wasn't being used this season - Gameweek 25

You probably know the drill by now.

Each week, GIVEMESPORT look at all the overturned VAR decisions in the Premier League and update our 'How the Premier League table would look without VAR.'

We've certainly had our work cut out.

Almost every week, there's been a controversial VAR incident that has completely changed the outcome of a match.

But we take VAR out of the equation and speculate how the match would have panned out if technology didn't interfere.

In gameweek 25, Glen Murray's equaliser during West Ham vs Brighton was initially ruled out for handball before VAR overturned it.

Then, there was VAR chaos at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. Manchester City were awarded a first half penalty almost two minutes of play after Sergio Aguero was fouled by Serge Aurier.  Ilkay Gundogan only went and missed it anyway.

So, how has the latest set of results changed our VAR table?

Let's take a look:
