VAR set to be used in Chelsea's EFL Cup clash
• Chelsea's game in the third round of Carabao Cup will use VAR, it has been confirmed
• Five other fixtures are also going to use video assistant, including Manchester United, Arsenal & Everton
Daily Mail report that the Liverpool vs Chelsea Carabao Cup clash will be played under Video Assistant Referees' (VAR) watch. The game will take place on Wednesday, September 26. But the Blues are not the only team to be played using VAR, there are five more fixtures under the same circumstances.
Here are the rest of them:
Manchester United vs Derby County
Wolves vs Leicester City at Molineux
West Ham vs Macclesfield Town
Arsenal vs Brentford
Everton vs Southampton
VAR technology allows the match official to be aware of incidents he may have missed or called incorrectly, rewatch them and make a decision based on the footage.
Usually, there are four main reasons to use VAR during the game: to decide if a goal should be allowed to stand, when a penalty should (or shouldn't) be awarded, to verify that a direct red card should be awarded, and in cases of mistaken identity.
