The Premier League are set to introduce 'thicker lines' to VAR offsides next season to help determine marginal decisions.

Otherwise, I would say, in case of doubt, follow the field decision."

However, with it going to take at least two years at least before it can be used in the Premier League, a decision was taken to use the thicker lines for now.

An agreement to use thicker lines followed a presentation by Professional Game Match Officials Limited referees' chief Mike Riley to clubs at their annual general meeting on Thursday.

The system is already used by other competitions such as UEFA and in the Dutch league, but it is not yet known whether thicker lines for offside will be used at FA Cup ties next season.

He said: "If the images are not conclusive, then the field decision cannot be overruled.

As first reported by The Times, the aim of the move is for the thicker lines to give a bigger margin of error to the offsides and to give the benefit of the doubt back to the attacker.
