Premier League table without VAR – where Liverpool, Everton, Man Utd, Newcastle and Arsenal would sit – gallery

This is how the Premier League table would look if VAR wasn’t involved this season

Liverpool and Everton have three games remaining in their respective Premier League campaigns as they face differing priorities until the end of the season.

The Reds’ hopes of securing a top-four place have increased in recent weeks as they now sit three points behind Newcastle United in third and one point adrift of Manchester United in fourth.

Both clubs have played a game fewer than Jurgen Klopp’s side, however, with Liverpool needing a perfect finish to their season and for one of the sides below them to drop more points.

On Monday, Everton moved out of the bottom three with a shock 5-1 win at Brighton and their survival fate is now firmly in their own hands. But how might things look this season if VAR did not get invovled in games?

Factoring in decisions that saw goals disallowed or awarded by the technology, here’s how the table might look as things stand…

Report: Spurs could rival Premier League pair for Liverpool player this summer

The Irish Independent have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are the latest club to enter the race for Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.

A whole host of goalkeepers have been named over potential replacements for Hugo Lloris recently, with 90 min claiming last week that Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili, Brentford’s David Raya, Porto’s Diogo Costa and Inter Milan’s Andre Onana are Spurs’ top targets.

However, The Independent have now claimed that Spurs are expected to join fellow Premier League sides Brighton and Brentford in the race for Kelleher’s signature.

It is explained that the Republic of Ireland international is keen to leave Anfield this summer in order to play regular first-team football since he knows that his path to the first team is blocked by Alisson.

It is suggested that the Bees have identified Kelleher as the man to replace Raya if he leaves the Amex Stadium but they might now have competition to contend with from Spurs for the 24-year-old.

The report suggests that Liverpool would be willing to cash in on the goalkeeper if they receive an offer of about £20m for him this summer.

Our View

I would be surprised if Tottenham pursue Kelleher as their main target, given the Irishman’s lack of experience at the top level.

I expect Spurs to go for a goalkeeper with a proven track record in the Premier League such as Raya, Sanchez or even Pickford (if Everton are relegated).
