After defeating Bournemouth in the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup, Chelsea have been drawn to face Arsenal in the semifinal of the competition.

The strong London rivals will meet across two legs next month as they fight to play the winners of Manchester City or Bristol City in the final at Wembley in February.

There have been contentious decisions between the two sides in time past, but that won’t happen this time around as both games are to use a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to assess contentious decisions like dives and offsides.

The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace will be the first use of it in a competitive English club game.

Video Assistant Referees have been introduced in the German Bundesliga this season and have been receiving good reviews after successfully overturning or awarding decisions which the referee on the field got wrong.
