EPL clubs set to appeal referee and VAR decisions

English Premier League clubs will next week hold a meeting to discuss the possibility of managers to appeal some of the decisions handed by referees.

The meeting by EPL clubs follows a controversial decision handed during matches following the introduction of the VAR technology.

As the managers contemplate the next move, the major question that has arisen is how many appeals should managers be allowed to file?

English Premier League is believed to be against the decision citing delays in the league as clubs will be on the doors requesting for a hearing.

Other sports including cricket are said to have adopted the appeal system which is working pretty well for them.

Another take by the governing body would request the clubs to lodge at least three appeals if possible per match.

This season two clubs have found themselves on the receiving end when Everton was denied a penalty when Dele Ali of Tottenham mishandled the ball and when Firmino of Liverpool was ruled offside by virtue of his armpit.
