    BURNLEY would have stayed up, and Leeds relegated, without VAR. SunSport has analysed all the on-field Prem decisions overturned by the video booth at Stockley Park. 2How the final Premier League table would have looked without VAR overturning decisions And while the top SIX would have finished in exactly the same order even if VAR did not exist, it would have been a very different situation at the bottom. Burnley’s woe at dropping out of the top flight will only be intensified by the study, which assumes that all penalties would have been scored had they been awarded. Without VAR intervention, the Clarets would have picked up FOUR more points, enough to take them comfortably clear of the drop zone in 16th place. Critical calls went against Burnley in four matches.

    LEICESTER, England (AP) — American coach Jesse Marsch had an encouraging first match in charge of Leeds — except for the result. Making the Premier League’s most porous team more resilient and organized didn’t stop Leeds falling to a 1-0 loss at Leicester on Saturday.

The best fell to Raphinha, whose close-range effort was saved by the outstretched foot of Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. Schmeichel had previously made great saves from Junior Firpo and Jack Harrison in the first half and Rodrigo after the break.
