VAR replaced ahead of Arsenal vs Man City clash
Referee John Brooks has been replaced as the VAR for both Liverpool vs. Everton and Arsenal vs. Manchester City on Wednesday.
Last weekend, Brooks wrongly disallowed a Brighton goal against Crystal Palace.
In his place, Andre Marriner and David Coote will assume VAR duties for both matches.
The PGMOL, which is responsible for referees in the Premier League, has already apologized to Brighton.
PGMOL admitted that VAR Brooks made an error in disallowing Pervis Estupinan’s goal against Palace when the lines were drawn incorrectly.
Lee Mason, the VAR for the Arsenal vs. Brentford fixture on Saturday, is also in the spotlight after he failed to apply the lines, which would have shown Christian Norgaard in an offside position before assisting Ivan Toney’s equalizer.
