Most goals disallowed – scorer
The ultimate disappointment – a player whose goal was ruled out by VAR. But who gets the most? It’s the duo of Liverpool Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, to add Son Heung-Min of Tottenham Hotspur, with four goals disallowed.
But how does it break?
Son has been ruled out three times for being offside, with the fourth being offside Lucas Moura fight with Southampton.
Salah, meanwhile, has also been ruled offside three times, plus Roberto Firmino was fined for using his hand to play the ball in the situation when Salah scored against Tottenham.
Mane, meanwhile, has two goals ruled out for his own offside, and two for handball.
Chelsea fans may have expected Timo Werner top of this list, but so far, VAR has disallowed three of his Premier League goals, the same number as City of Manchester‘NS Gabriel Jesus and another Tottenham player, Harry Kane.
If it’s just offside goals, it’s clear that Salah and Son would top this list with their three disallowed goals.
But we see some new faces as we look deeper down the board. The other players with more goals that are not allowed offside are Mane, Ollie Watkins of the Aston Villa and Chris Wood of the Burnley.
Most disallowed targets (all related)
Sometimes it’s the teammate’s fault when the goal is disallowed. Maybe they were offside in the match-fixing situation, or maybe they made a foul. When you add these people to the goalscorers excluded, we can find out who was unfortunately directly involved in the disallowed goals.
It was their own Mane and Son, both of whom were involved in a total of six goals ruled out by VAR.
In addition to the four goals that Mane was disallowed, he was also considered to have fouled before Diogo Jota score in the net West Ham United, and was previously offside Jordan HendersonEverton’s late goal last season.
Son, meanwhile, also scores for Serge Aurier and Kane reversed with south Korea The international offside in building for both, to add to his own four goals.
Jesus, Salah, Wood, plus West Ham United‘NS Michael Antonio Next in the table, each person participated in four disallowed targets.
Most awarded goals – scorer
Arsenal fan can hate VAR, but striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may feel different. He got four goals thanks to VAR decisions, one due to an incorrect offside in Manchester United and three more through penalty-related rollovers (rewards and retrials for trespassing.)
The only player to score four goals is Leicester City‘NS Jamie Vardy – and all came from the penalty spot with three outright and another from a rematch following a foul after his penalty was saved in Brighton. No player has scored more penalties via VAR than Vardy’s four, with Aubameyang with three from free-kicks and seven players scoring twice.
Fourteen players have conceded two goals after VAR decisions, including Kane, Salah, Son, Arsenal Alexandre Lacazette and of Man United Bruno Fernandes.
Most goals are awarded after incorrect offside
Joshua King was the only player to get two goals when an offside situation was reversed. He was the first player to have a goal come in after an incorrect offside, four games against Bournemouth against West Ham in September 2019, with his second coming for Watford at Everton last month.
Most of VAR’s participation
Son has been on his own when it comes to VAR, clearly topping the list with 10 VAR flips, more than twice that of any other player in the Premier League.
That said, all was not bad, as Son had benefited from two penalties from the penalty spot thanks to VAR, and was fouled by Scott McTominay prior to Edinson Cavani against Man United last season. He was also sent off against Chelsea in December 2019 for a challenge Antonio Rudiger.
Mane and Wilson are next on the list with eight joins, then Jesus with seven.
By Everton Dominic Calvert-Lewin appeared in 6 games, scored twice, conceded two goals and had two penalty fouls, just like Fernandes and Salah.
Man United midfielder Fernandes scored two penalties, missed another, and one penalty was cancelled.
Most goals are not allowed for handball
Mane is the only player to have more than one goal eliminated by the top scorer in matches against Man United and Brighton.
However, there was one more hand foul before a teammate scored and Newcastle’s Wilson joined Mane to score twice.
Most penalties are won
Only four players were awarded two penalties: Lacazette, Werner, plus Man United Marcus Rashford and former Man City striker Sergio Aguero.
Conceded most penalties
Stepping up front, Leicester’s Wilfried Ndidi, who conceded two penalties thanks to VAR and is the only player to have conceded multiple penalties for handballing.
But he has been involved in two concedes for all of the offense by a few Newcastle centre-backs, Ciaran Clark and Jamaal Lascelles.
Most red cards won
No player has been sent off more than once, but two players have received numerous fouls that resulted in a red card from VAR.
Newcastle striker Wilson has seen three players sacked: Norwich’s Ben Godfrey (while at Bournemouth), Fulham’s Joachim Andersen and, just this month, the Brighton keeper Robert Sánchez.
The other player belongs to Burnley Ashley Westwood, who received two red cards due to VAR’s opponent.
