Referees' chief Mike Riley has admitted that the goal which ultimately cost Watford victory in Javi Gracia's last match as manager was among four VAR mistakes so far during this Premier League season.

Riley, managing director of the official referee's body and the man responsible for VAR in England, said technology had "added value to the game" but said there had been incidents where a referee's decision should have been overturned.

"That gives you the scale of where VAR can help and add value to the game, but it also demonstrates that this is still about refereeing a game of Premier League football on the pitch".

"There have been six incidents where VAR has advised the referee and we have got a better decision as a result".

"Out of the four match rounds there's been some really good examples of where we've intervened", Riley told Sky Sports.

"What we've talked about this morning is the four instances where actually the VAR didn't intervene, and had we done I think it would have been a better understanding of the role the VAR plays in the game".

"We are trying not to disrupt the flow of the game but on these occasions, the judgement should have been that it was a clear and obvious error".
