VAR 'finger in ear' signal to be reviewed before cup replays

Poll believes that Atkinson only should have consulted his VAR for Victor Moses' challenge on Ainsley Maitland-Niles inside Chelsea's penalty area and for Danny Welbeck's late challenge on Cesc Fabregas inside Arsenal's box.

"But Chelsea had a corner and Arsenal, I'm not saying they were struggling but you want to take that corner quicker rather than slower and they had to wait and so you get your position back and you wait and you know what's happening".

Conte was frustrated his side had been unable to make a breakthrough against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, but insisted the tie is still in the balance. Some television replays were initially unclear whether the ball brushed against 's arm before falling into the net.

"I'm positive [on VAR] because when there is a big doubt it's right to check the decision. Today it was successful".

"I would like to think that Alexis Sanchez will still be here and play in that game! There's a lot of money in this game, and I think this system could have come in a lot earlier than it has". Both managers made sweeping changes - 12 in all between the two teams. Arsene Wenger was slightly confused about Atkinson returning to the Welbeck penalty incident, and suggested play should be stopped instantly if the referee was not sure.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has said he is happy with the VAR system.

Although there were suggestions it may have gone in off his hand, the VAR deemed this was not the case as referee Andre Marriner stuck by his decision to award the goal.

"For me it is only disappointment about extra time because I think in the second half the doctor went on the pitch twice and then if you stop to listen to the VAR you have to give more minutes in extra time".

"I was pleased as it seemed to work the right way".
