Prem refs' chief admits to four big errors by VAR

Failure to give a red card to Leicester City's Youri Tielemen for his reckless challenge on Bournemouth's Callum Wilson.

Failure to award a penalty to Manchester City when Bournemouth's Jefferson Lerma stood on David Silva's foot in the box.

Fabian Schar's equaliser for Newcastle against Watford should have been disallowed, with VAR official Craig Pawson missing an Isaac Hayden handball.

Other high-profile decisions not considered as mistakes were Harry Kane's penalty appeal for Tottenham against Newcastle, and Erik Lamela's alleged foul on Rodri in the area in Man City vs. Spurs.

VAR was not able to intervene and award Aston Villa a goal at Crystal Palace as referee Kevin Friend had already blown his whistle for a dive by Jack Grealish before the ball crossed the line, and as such play was already dead.

"There have been six incidents where VAR has advised the referee and we have got a better decision as a result".

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "We are learning as we go along and we are constantly improving".

"Out of the four match rounds, there have been some really good examples where we have intervened".

While the view is that video replays have been beneficial so far.it is understood that in future there will be interventions from the VAR HQ at Stockley Park should similar incidents take place.

VAR's guidelines state that the technology should only be used to overturn a decision if the on-pitch referee has made a clear and obvious error.
