The Premier League VAR change which could impact Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and appease fans

The use of VAR in the Premier League could be changed in a move which would impact Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Sky Sports are reporting that football lawmakers are reviewing whether to allow any communication between the referee and VAR to be heard by fans during matches.

This comes on the back of complaints from supporters on the use of VAR this season.

From the constantly long waiting times to a lack of clarity of decisions, it’s now thought that lawmakers are eager to appease fans.

The Daily Star have reported that ‘as of February 27 there had been 83 total overturns, 21 of which leading to goals and 44 chalking them off’.

The change could lead to supporters hearing the discussion between the on-field referee and the VAR official at Stockley Park on loudspeakers in the stadium, therefore making fans more aware of decisions.

Former Premier League referee David Elleray recently gave his view on the use of VAR this season and told Sky Sports about what needs to happen next.

“I think most people would say that it hasn’t been a howling success,” Elleray told Sky Sports.

“But many lessons have been learned and those lessons will be put into place next year.

“I think we’ve been aware, over the last four years or so, of VAR that any competition that has started using it, it hasn’t always gone well at the beginning. They’ve adjusted, they’ve modified.”
