Is VAR doing a better job than you think? (2:32)

ESPN's Dale Johnson explains how despite criticism, VAR suffers most because so few understand what's going on. (2:32)

VAR arrived in the Premier League this season but, despite much debate about how much it is impacting on the game, so far 41 goals or incidents have been directly affected by the video ref.

- VAR in the Premier League: Ultimate guide

Here, we run through the league table of overturned decisions. Who will benefit most over the course of the Premier League season? Only Newcastle have yet to experience an overturn decision against them.

Total overturns: 41
Leading to goals: 12
Leading to disallowed goals: 22
Penalties awarded: 7 (2 missed)
Penalties overturned: 2
Penalties retakes: 3 (1 from scored, 2 from missed)
Goals ruled out for offside: 13
Goals awarded after incorrect offside: 5
Goals ruled out for handball: 4
Red cards: 1
Overturned red cards: 1

What will the VAR review?
- Goal/no goal
- Penalty/no penalty
- Direct red card (not second yellow card/caution)
- Mistaken identity (when the referee cautions or sends off the wrong player)

What will it not review?
- Any yellow card (including second yellow card leading to red)
- Any free kick offence outside the box (other than red card offence)

This relates purely to overturned decisions, so penalty appeals that stay with the on-field referee are not included.
