The Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) has instructed Premier League referees to start employing pitchside monitors when making potential red card decisions, according to BBC Sport's Simon Stone.

Match officials in England's top flight have been criticized for not consulting pitchside monitors and instead conferring with the video assistant referee (VAR).

In fact, pitchside monitors have only been used on one occasion this season. Referee Michael Oliver opted to check the monitor during an FA Cup third-round match between Crystal Palace and Derby County, upgrading a yellow card for Palace midfielder Luka Milivojevic to a red.
