Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists goal-line technology will not slow down the Premier League.

Wenger insists it will not have a negative impact on the natural flow of top-flight matches.

“When a referee speaks to a player for two minutes and says, 'be careful because if you come back and make a bad tackle I’ll be in a position to give you a yellow card' and doesn’t do anything else, you can argue it slows the game down,” he told arsenal.com.

“When a goalkeeper takes a minute over a goal kick, you could argue it slows the game down. I don’t believe [technology] would slow the game down at all if it is done in the right way.

“If it was to sell more publicity [or] if it was for financial reasons then I don’t agree with it. But if it is to get more decisions right then we all have to fight for it.”
