Wolves, Chelsea and Newcastle United get surprise positions in Premier League table with no VAR

If VAR didn't exist, the Premier League table would change – with some teams seeing multiple points dropped or gained.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have had their fair share of poor refereeing decisions in the Premier League this season.

Head coach Gary O'Neil has made it clear he feels his team would be quite a few points better off with better officiating following poor calls against Manchester United, Luton Town, Newcastle United, Sheffield United and Fulham.

Wolves aren't the only team to have been impacted, though, as others have either seen the positive or negative side of refereeing – particularly with the presence of VAR.

But would the Premier League table look different if VAR didn't exist at all? We've taken a look at the latest data and there are some major changes to the standings – albeit maybe not as big of a change for Wolves as you might expect, surprisingly.
