The Carabao Cup has reached its quarter-final, but will VAR be making an appearance?
The video referee system has proved controversial in the Premier League.
Does the Carabao Cup have VAR?
VAR was used in the Carabao Cup in 2018/19.
However, the EFL opted to get rid of the system last season on the grounds that it was only being used at Premier League venues.
This caused particular controversy in the FA Cup when Man City were given a controversial penalty at Swansea and no VAR was allowed to be used even though the Liberty Stadium had the system installed.

What decisions is VAR used for?
THE video assistant referee can be called upon for four key on-field incidents.

How does VAR work?
THE video assistant referee will liaise with the on-pitch referee to relay information on calls.
The video assistant referee – a top official who will be based at Stockley Park for the matches – has access to every camera angle and goal-line technology cameras.
The VAR also has an assistant watching the game with them.
Will VAR be used in the Premier League?
VAR is now used in all Premier League matches.
