The FA Cup third spherical conflict between Crystal Palace and fellow Premier League facet Brighton has been chosen to check the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for the primary time in a aggressive English fixture.
Palace host Brighton on the sixth of January 2018, and in that match VAR can be used for the primary time in England,
The FA Cup this 12 months makes use of VAR know-how… however solely from the third spherical… and solely in video games performed at Premier League grounds…. and never in Liverpool vs Everton as a result of it is too high-profile 類
