EPL: Controversial VAR offside system could be scrapped after Week 1 drama

Raheem Sterling Matches Luis Suarez's Premier League Record

Raheem Sterling Matches Luis Suarez's Premier League Record

The UK Times reports that there will be a review, over whether it should only intervene if there is a clear error.

If there is to be changes to the way VAR is implemented it will likely take place in March when the IFAB holds its annual meeting.

The International FA Board (IFAB) will look into the VAR protocol and this will include the way it monitors offsides.

The Premier League is not alone with its issues over VAR, with UEFA officials also voicing concerns following a controversial summer.

One of the most contentious calls from the video technology system was the decision to rule out a third goal for Manchester City in their clash with West Ham United. VAR was questioned, while it disallowed Gabriel Jesus' goal, as his teammate Raheem Sterling was millimetres ahead of the offside line.

Referees' chief Mike Riley told The Times: "There is a philosophical debate as to whether it's clear and obvious and a technological debate and laws of the game debate".

Suarez scored 69 league goals for Liverpool between 2011 and 2014, which coincided in part with Sterling's three-and-a-half-year spell with the Reds' first team. If one of the ways you can help simplify the process and speed up is to tweak the law then that might be something for consideration. "We have already gone from a 2D line on the pitch to what you have seen in the Champions League, which is the lines coming down which is more accurate, and I've no doubt the software companies are looking at something which is even more accurate".
