This season it has become clear that refereeing and VAR have not given the expected results, and week after week there are new complaints about the performance of the referees, where their criteria for ruling on fouls is very wrong and they tend to fail a lot without even reaffirming their position in front of the VAR.

This has already taken its toll on Liverpool who have already lost an incredible amount of points this season due to bad refereeing against Liverpool. The mistakes have been as much a part of the VAR as the central referees. This doesn't seem to be changing and in the last two games against Arsenal and Burnley there were plays that deserved another decision, such as Martin Ødegaard's handball in the box and Harvey Elliott's disallowed goal.

However, Manchester City have been the beneficiaries of a very poor performance by the referees, as we saw in Manchester City's match against Everton, where the Blues sky defender Nathan Ake shot from outside the area and it hit the opponent in a deliberate manner, and this was taken as a penalty in favour of the Citizens and they went up on the scoreboard in the 64th minute.

While Liverpool were denied a clear penalty against Arsenal a week ago, when Martin Ødegaard committed a clear handball in the box and referee Chris Kavanagh failed to call it and review it on the VAR, missing the chance for Liverpool to take the lead.

Despite the support for the Citizens, the Reds remain a big team

The Reds remain in contention at the top of the Premier League despite the fact that Manchester City have been given plenty of help to keep them in the title race. Despite this, the Reds are showing how to become a true champion, single-handedly.
