No VAR worries for Welbeck after Chelsea penalty shout

No VAR worries for Welbeck after Chelsea penalty shout”

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck "wasn't worried" that he had given away a penalty in the goalless Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg at Chelsea.

On Wednesday, referee Martin Atkinson consulted with video ref Neil Swarbrick, who sat in the Premier League's control room in west London, on two penalty appeals - one for each team - but no decisions were overturned.

"It has gone very well in the first few games", Riley told BBC Radio 5 Live. "We've had the opportunity to use it, it has been used very effectively and we've come out with the right outcomes".

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

"If there is no penalty, you give it to the defending team, because it looks a bit odd to go on for two minutes and then to come back".

"That is a little bit longer than we have done in training", said Riley.

"But the second one, for me, it would look a bit odd". "It typically takes the VAR around 30 to 40 seconds to look at something".

"We're talking around that, reviewing both games this week and coming up with some ideas for next week to make that more effective".

'We are at the start of the process.

Brighton beat Palace 2-1 to advance to the fourth round, with the VAR Neil Swarbrick reviewing and allowing Brighton striker Glenn Murray's late victor to stand, after the ball initially appeared to brush off the player's hand.

Riley believes the game will benefit from the introduction of VAR.

If Chelsea beat Norwich, their tie with Newcastle United - also on BT Sport 2 - could be another VAR game the following afternoon.

But if Atkinson had pointed to the spot it would have stood, as it would not constitute a "clear and obvious" error.

"VAR can actually add value".
