Chelsea manager Antonio Conte backed the video assistant referee (VAR) system after his side’s goalless draw with Arsenal in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

Referee Martin Atkinson consulted the VAR on two Chelsea penalty claims, when Victor Moses tangled with Ainsley Maitland-Niles in the first half and for Danny Welbeck’s last-minute challenge on Cesc Fabregas, but he was satisfied enough with the evidence relayed to him not to award a spot-kick.

“I am very positive about VAR because when there is a big doubt during the game it is right the referee and the other referee watch the video to check and make the best decision,” Conte said.
