Prem refs' chief admits to four big errors by VAR

Referees bosses have admitted to Premier League chairman that there have been four VAR blunders so far this season.

The other two errors were the referee's decision not to award Manchester City a penalty when Jefferson Lerma stood on David Silva's foot in the Bournemouth box and a decision not to give West Ham a penalty when Sebastien Haller was brought down by Norwich's Tom Trybull.

While it might have not worked out on four occasions, the assistants have made six right decisions.
