Premier League referees are strictly enforcing one rule, which may result in more goals.


This season, Premier League referees plan to strictly enforce one particular rule, which might result in more goals being scored.

A new campaign is typically accompanied by a fresh set of rules, and this year is no exception. To discuss the plans, Prem officials held a group meeting on Wednesday, August 3, at St. George’s Park.

In his column, former referee and current VAR official Mike Dean stated that they would like to extend the amount of time the ball is in play. Only 55 minutes and 7 seconds per game were played the previous season.

Teams will have more chances to score goals because the ball will be in play more frequently. It will also be a welcome change from the recent rise in stop-start behavior.
