Premier League will make use of Video Assistant Referees - FA chief Glenn Martin

FA chief executive Martin Glenn expects the Premier League to introduce Video Assistant Referees (VAR) after the system's permanent use was approved by lawmakers this weekend.
The system is being trialled in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, with Premier League clubs expected to discuss technology for match officials at a meeting next month.

He said "I genuinely feel with the Premier League it's not a question of if but when, you need to get more experience and the only way to get more experience is to commit to do it. It's the Premier League's decision whether to introduce VAR. They have in my view chosen correctly not to be early adopters because why wouldn't you let other people find things out. The Premier League is the most lucrative league in the world so the consequence of a bad implementation of VAR is quite bad but likewise the consequence of not ever running VAR when the stakes are so high, someone getting relegated on the back of a refereeing error, which will happen, that could have been eliminated by VAR is a big deal as well."
