According to the Mirror, the decision was made at a meeting involving the league's 20 teams on Friday.

VAR will be used at the 2018 World Cup, while it has been used sparing in this season's FA Cup.

 “I think Manchester City agreed to it but the other top teams, United and Chelsea, didn’t want it," Guardiola was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
 
“It’s okay, it will happen though. Not just here in England, all around the world, the referees must be helped. Today the football is quicker, it’s faster.
 
“Now, for example, right now we don’t know if it was a penalty or no penalty for Madrid.
 
“It’s not easy for the referees. I think they need to be helped, but if the guys decided to do that, it will happen.”
