Wolves: Fans react angrily to VAR statistic

Wolves: Fans react angrily to VAR statistic

A study by bettingexpert [via Express & Star] revealed that Wolves have lost more points because of decisions overturned by VAR than any other club in the Premier League this season.

The study showed that Nuno Espirito Santo’s team would have an additional four points so far this term if every decision originally made by on-field referees had stood, a four-point swing that would have them in sixth place instead of their current position of 12th.

Joe Edwards, Wolves correspondent for the Express & Star, shared the intriguing statistic on Twitter via his profile @JoeEdwards_Star.

Wolves have twice been denied victories in the Premier League this season by VAR-disallowed goals. On the opening weekend, Leander Dendoncker’s goal in the 0-0 draw at Leicester was ruled out by VAR official Jon Moss, who deemed the ball to have struck Willy Boly’s arm in the build-up.

Last month, Raul Jimenez had two first-half goals against Southampton disallowed after VAR reviews in a match that ended 1-1, with one chalked off for handball and the other ruled out due to Patrick Cutrone being a fraction offside in the build-up. [via Sky Sports]

These Wolves fans on Twitter were left seething after Edwards’ tweet about the impact of VAR on their season so far:

Do you think Wolves have had legitimate gripes about VAR so far this season or do they just need to accept the decisions that have been made? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
