But without the often questionable intervention of the umpires in their Stockley Park dressing rooms and the subsequent reversal of decisions, they would be five places and two points worse off.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils lose three big points, the most in the division, slipping from fifth to ninth place.

Among the most notable calls in their favor was West Ham’s late equaliser, which was controversially and inexplicably ruled out at Stamford Bridge.

And the ESPN inquest suggests the decision to rule out Gabriel Martinelli’s opener saved Erik ten Hag’s side a defeat – despite securing a 3-1 win over Arsenal.

Brentford falls five places to 14th without VAR thanks to their key role in the Bees’ win over West Ham, while Liverpool would have lost the Merseyside derby.

On the other hand, Arsenal are the Premier League’s biggest losers – although they are still leaders.

As mentioned, the 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford would convert into a win, thus giving them a perfect 21 points from seven games so far, increasing their lead to two points from Tottenham instead of one from Manchester City.

Spurs are also badly wounded after their penalty was ticked off at West Ham – otherwise they would go straight under the Gunners into the hard-hitting north London derby, where Jarred Gillett has VAR duties.

Leeds and Everton both climb five places without VAR decisions, while Bournemouth and relegation-threatened Wolves jump four places.

The bottom three of West Ham, Nottingham Forest and Leicester remain the same.

Forest’s only Premier League win this season against the Hammers would not have lasted, while not even abolishing VAR calls can help the under-fire Brendan Rodgers secure his first three points of the season for the struggling Foxes.
