Premier League to issue fresh instructions to referees over use of VAR



Premier League bosses will meet to discuss a review of the current VAR system, reports the UK Times. This follows another weekend of high profile incidents, with Everton and Arsenal in particular on the receiving side of hard decisions.

The VAR has now been used in 100 Premier League games this season, with up to 26 decisions voided, including the controversial Brighton penalty and Arsenal with a late winner ruled out against Crystal Palace.

However, there has not been a single occasion where the referee has consulted the field monitor. Premier League officials have been encouraged to minimize delays, leaving decisions to the VAR.

But a series of high profile decisions have led to calls from arbitrators to take a look at the monitors. The policy will be reviewed at the next Premier League meeting within three weeks.
