​FA confirms VAR for FA Cup replays

The video assistant referee (VAR) will be used in the FA Cup third round replays between Chelsea and Norwich, and Leicester City and Fleetwood Town.

VAR was used for the first time in a competitive English club game as Brighton beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in the FA Cup third round on Monday.

The FA plans to use VAR in each round of the FA Cup, while it is also being trialled in Wednesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg between Chelsea and Arsenal, plus the return leg two weeks' later.
