Riley, a former top level referee who has been in his present role since June 2009, conceded that one of the decisions taken in Wednesday's game took far longer than had been the case in training.

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.

It meant that Chelsea's match with Arsenal finished 0-0, leaving the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg - held at the Emirates Stadium on January 24 - finely poised.

During the trial period, the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) has advised referees to be lenient with managers and players who gesticulate for the...

He told BBC Radio 5 live: "We're coming up with ideas to make that more effective". "We've had the opportunity to use it, it has been used very effectively and we've come out with the right outcomes".

Arsenal teammate Calum Chambers added: "You're aware".

"But we are at the start of the process and it will take time for the VARs to become accustomed to this".

Play had continued immediately after the incident, with an incensed Conte making the VAR signal with his hands towards the fourth official. The more we do of that the faster we will be at it and the less impact we will have on the game. I think there are situations where you have doubt about these and you have to check but, at the same time, in extra time you have to consider this. Some television replays were initially unclear whether the ball brushed against 's arm before falling into the net. It is there to be used in situations where the referee team have made a clear and obvious error on the field of play.

"If the referee is not sure we could stop the game straight away".
