Danny Welbeck 'wasn't worried' over VAR incident

So far so good’ English football’s experiment with Video Assistant Referee passes initial test

No use with unauthorized audio, video, data, fixture lists, club/league logos or "live" services.

Riley said that spectators inside the stadium could be finding it hard to interpret whether a referee has asked for the use of VAR during a game.

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.

It was in effect on Monday for the first time in an English club match, when Brighton beat Crystal Palace in the FA Cup third round, but it wasn't called on then.

Welbeck's challenge in the penalty area on Cesc Fabregas was referred to Video Assistant Referee Neil Swarbrick by Martin Atkinson but after a lengthy delay the decision was no penalty.

"There was only two opportunities for them to intervene".

"The second [incident] was a bit unusual, the ball went out for the corner and then they went back to the penalty", Wenger said.

The night's biggest talking point, however, was the incident involving Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas as the pair collided on 88 minutes.

"When you get a team in the last five minutes, and you take a corner quick and another one, and so I was like, "hmm".

"Currently, if you look at the referee, you will see him put his finger in his ear but I accept that in the stadium that can be quite hard to see so the question now is how can we improve that experience for spectators".

Martin Atkinson asked the VAR to look at a first-half tackle from Victor Moses on Ainsley Maitland-Niles as he saw some contact. "You can see them talking in their ear but it's one of those things, we'll get used to it".

After the game, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said: "I'm sure the referee checked this situation [with Welbeck on Fabregas]".

"It is right, in this way for sure the mistakes are less".
