The Premier League’s video assistant referees have made six incorrect interventions this season, while 42 have been ruled correct by the Major Match Incidents Panel.

ESPN has reported that one of the six errors includes Gabriel Martinelli’s disallowed goal in Arsenal’s loss to Manchester United in September.

Arsenal were denied an opening goal by VAR in the 12th minute after referee Paul Tierney disallowed the Brazilian striker’s goal after Martin Odegaard fouled Christian Eriksen ahead of the goal via the pitchside monitor.

As part of a higher-threshold approach, the independent panel also concluded that in the first 16 game rounds — 160 games — of all previous KMI incidents, there had been six missed VAR interventions from the broader decision-making pool.

It is hoped fewer mistakes will be made with the arrival of Howard Webb, who has taken up his role as Chief Refereeing Officer at PGMOL and will meet key Premier League and English Football League staff in the new year.

Webb, who refereed the 2010 World Cup Final, will bring a greater level of transparency to PGMOL after the 51-year-old received praise for the way VAR was used in MLS under his supervision.

PL is applying to attend trial for temporary concussion

The Premier League has asked football’s lawmakers if they can participate in a process that sees temporary concussion substitutes used from the start of next season.

A joint bid by the Premier League, MLS and Ligue 1 has been submitted to the International Football Association Board (IFAB) through FIFPro and the World Leagues Forum.

Medical professionals from all 20 Premier League clubs have been consulted over the past four to six weeks on the current protocols for concussion in the top flight, which involves an on-field head injury assessment and the use of a permanent concussion replacement if necessary.

Premier League medics are in favor of introducing temporary concussion substitutes, where a player suspected of having a concussion would leave the pitch to be examined in a private area and temporarily replaced.

If that player passes the HIA, they are allowed back onto the field. If the player in question failed the assessment, the change would become a permanent concussion replacement.

Several controversial incidents occurred at the World Cup, with players suffering head injuries, and Headway, a brain injury charity, criticized Wales’ handling of Neco Williams’ substitution against England in a group game last month.

Williams fell to the ground after blocking Marcus Rashford’s shot with the top of his head but passed FIFA’s concussion test and went on before being withdrawn before half-time. Headway used the incident to highlight the need to temporarily introduce concussion replacements.

Similar situations arose in the pre-mid-season Premier League when Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez was substituted against Newcastle after originally trying to continue playing after suffering a head injury.

The IFAB rejected calls to introduce temporary concussion substitutions at its annual general meeting in Doha this summer, saying existing concussion protocols – which allow for additional permanent concussion substitutions – would remain in effect, with the trial being extended until August next year.

A decision on whether the bid from the Premier League, MLS and Ligue 1 has been successful is expected in March.

dr Adam White, Head of Brain Health for the Professional Footballers’ Association, said: “Current concussion replacement laws put the health and safety of players at risk.

“As a players’ union we have long advocated the introduction of temporary concussion substitutes and together with our global union colleagues at FIFPRO we have previously called on IFAB to allow trials.

Matthew Upson says football’s approach to concussion should be the same everywhere and argues that every competition should use concussion replacement products. The rule is not currently used in UEFA competitions

“We have since worked with FIFPRO to coordinate this new approach by unions and leagues to IFAB, reflecting a growing consensus in this area.

“We again urge the IFAB to allow trials of temporary concussion substitutions to protect players and better support everyone involved.”

PL has no intention of following World Cup post-game protocol

While the recent World Cup added a lot of stoppage time at the end of the game, the Premier League has no intention of following FIFA protocols of missing every second due to a goal celebration.

The average match length for Premier League games this season was 98 minutes and five seconds, compared to the average length of games in the World Cup group stage which was 101.34.

The use of semi-automatic offside lines to be introduced at the World Cup and UEFA competitions is currently being explored, with the Premier League sending a staff member to Qatar as part of FIFA’s technology working group, but no final decision has been made on whether to do so to bring in this use of technology.

The Premier League has also reminded all clubs about the behavior of players and managers following an uptick in behaviour, particularly in relation to match officials in the first half of the season.
