VAR Error Officials Stood Down For Weekend Premier League Games

VAR Error Officials Stood Down For Weekend Premier League Ga

Darren England

Referees Darren England and Dan Cook have been stood down for this weekend's Premier League games because of a "significant human error" in Liverpool's 2-1 defeat at Tottenham on Saturday.

England and Cook did not overrule when Luis Diaz was wrongly flagged offside, leading to an ongoing fallout from last weekend's VAR controversy. 

The duo were originally replaced for two games but that has now been extended to a further round of fixtures.

They will be replaced by the on-field referee from that game, Simon Hooper, when Everton host Bournemouth this Saturday.

Michael Oliver, who was the fourth official, will equally be a VAR official for Luton's game against Tottenham on Saturday, before taking charge on the field for Arsenal's game against Manchester City on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool on Monday demanded the audio of the conversation between Hooper and England, to better understand how the breakdown in communication happened.
