It earned the stamp of approval from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, whose latest battle with officials has landed him a three match touchline ban. No use in betting, games or single club/league/player publications.

It meant that Chelsea's match with Arsenal finished 0-0, leaving the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg - held at the Emirates Stadium on January 24 - finely poised.

― Picture vua FifaLONDON, Jan 11 ― English football's referees chief Mike Riley professed himself to be satisfied with the way the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology has performed in the two games it has been used in so far.

"Currently, if you look at the referee, you will see him put his finger in his ear but I accept that in the stadium that can be quite hard to see so the question now is how can we improve that experience for spectators".

Atkinson consulted VAR official Neil Swarbrick, based at Premier League headquarters in Stockley Park, after a tussle between Calum Chambers and Cesar Azpilicueta at a first-half corner and no penalty was awarded. "You can see them talking in their ear but it's one of those things, we'll get used to it".
