A large screen shows a VAR decision under reviewVAR was introduced for the 2019-20 Premier League season

The Premier League’s video assistant referees have made six wrong interventions this season – and missed six more incidents when they should have intervened.

A five-person independent panel was introduced this season to conduct a weekly Key Match Incidents (KMI) review for all high-profile games.

InNewCL Sport understand the panel went through hundreds of incidents and identified 48 situations where VAR had to intervene, making 42 correct decisions.

However, six incidents were found to have been completely overlooked and on a further six occasions VAR overturned on-pitch decisions that had originally been correct.

It is not known what the individual decisions were, but newly appointed Premier League chief referee Howard Webb is determined to improve standards.

Given the time he’s spent in Major League Soccer (MLS), where VAR has been in operation since 2017, it’s no surprise that Webb, who refereed the 2010 World Cup Finals, is a supporter of the system.

However, he realizes that the implementation in the English game has not been smooth.

It is understood that a new VAR manager, whose background is in rugby league, has now been appointed and that Webb intends to visit all top-flight clubs and some in the Football League early in the new year to discuss the role at to speak entire game .

Premier League want to be part of temporary subs concussion trial

The use of concussion replacements also remains a contentious issue in the Premier League.

The Professional Footballers Association renewed their call for temporary substitutions in late October when Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez stayed on the field after being hit to the head against Newcastle but was substituted minutes later.

Premier League doctors believe the use of temporary substitutes would bring positive benefits and, along with France’s Ligue 1 and North American MLS, the league has written to the game’s rulemaking body, Ifab, via the World Leagues Forum to to express their willingness to be part of a study next season.

It doesn’t expect a reply before March and notes the request may be rejected as Ifab’s belief, backed by at least one major European league, hasn’t changed that temporary substitutions could cause more problems from rushed concussion assessments.

Ifab remains of the view that any player suspected of having a concussion should be substituted completely.

Cunha could play for Wolves on January 4

InNewCL Sport understand the Premier League has decided to treat 1 and 2 January, which fall on Saturday and Sunday, as working days for player registration.

This means clubs signing players can register as soon as the January transfer window opens, in time for Round 19, which begins with Liverpool’s trip to Brentford on January 2nd.

It matters for Wolves as it could potentially allow Matheus Cunha to feature in the Midlands derby at Aston Villa on January 4, provided the Brazilian’s move from Atletico Madrid is completed in time.

It was also found that the Premier League average playing time has increased by 38 seconds this season as referees have become more proactive in dealing with wasted time.

However, while this initiative continues, league officials do not expect games to be stretched to the same level as some games at the World Cup in Qatar, when games longer than 100 minutes became the norm.
