Referees chief Mike Riley is under pressure to increase the use of VAR after being called in front of the Premier League to discuss the early-season controversies.

Sportsmail can reveal that the Premier League asked to see the PGMOL boss last week to go over some of the issues which have arisen during the first four rounds of the campaign.

There was particular emphasis on the high-profile incidents for which VAR did not intervene, even though the on-field referee would have had access to several replays and angles had he consulted the pitchside monitor.

The Premier League will not be re- refereeing the game by VAR and will set a high bar for decisions, says referees ' chief Mike Riley .

Riley is also under pressure from law makers IFAB to lower the bar for VAR intervention and instruct his officials to make more use of pitchside replays, as their guidelines dictate.

At present, there is a feeling that VAR officials in the Premier League are too reluctant to send the referee to the monitor for fear it will delay the game.

However, cases such as Youri Tielemans’ studs-up challenge on Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson would have surely resulted in a red card for the Leicester midfielder had the referee been told to review a replay.

Manchester City’s David Silva also saw penalty appeals waved away and there was no VAR intervention after what looked like a clear trip on him during their win at Bournemouth.

UK drones could be deployed to Gulf amid crisis with Iran The UK is considering sending drones to the Gulf as the crisis with Iran continues. The unmanned aircraft would help with overhead surveillance as British warships continue to escort UK-flagged tankers through the Strait of Hormuz. The RAF still has a number of Reaper drones based in nearby Kuwait - they are flying missions over Iraq and Syria but could be re-tasked if the decision is taken. The US already has surveillance aircraft operating above the Gulf and Australia is sending a P8 maritime patrol aircraft. They are part of a growing coalition being formed to protect shipping in the region.

The Premier League introduced video assistant refereeing this season, but a string of controversies , and at least four significant mistakes, have players, coaches and fans running out of patience. Riley and other Premier League officials said it was unlikely there would be any significant changes soon.

But we understand that Riley, during a meeting with his officials, told them that he was pleased with their handling of games and the new technology.

We have been told that Riley also offered his backing to Kevin Friend. The referee was widely criticised for blowing his whistle and cautioning Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish for diving a split-second before team-mate Henri Lansbury scored what would have been a stoppage-time equaliser at Crystal Palace.

VAR could not review the goal because play had already been stopped. Replays, however, suggested Grealish had not dived, although we understand Riley has told Friend he got the decision correct.
