Video Assistant Referee (VAR) will be in operation for the four Semi-Finals and Wembley Final in this year’s Carabao Cup.
Fans in the stadium will be kept abreast of in-game developments with the same notification process and protocols put in place for supporters as has been used throughout the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Based remotely at Stockley Park, VAR will assist the referee in ONLY four match changing situations:
· Penalty/no penalty decisions
· Direct red cards shown or not shown (second yellow cards are not able to be reviewed)
· Mistaken identity

|Tuesday 7 January||Manchester United v Manchester City||20.00|
|Wednesday 8 January||Leicester City v Aston Villa||20.00|
|Tuesday 28 January||Aston Villa v Leicester City||19.45|
