English Premier League 2019/2020 will roll this weekend. A number of changes and new things colored the competition this season. Anything? Premier League kicks 2019/2020 will be held on Friday (9/8/2019) evening local time or Saturday (10/8/2019) early morning hrs. The match between Liverpool and Norwich City at Anfield will be the opening curtain of the competition. For this season, the Premier League applies several new rules. The following are new things that will color the 2019/2020 Premier League as quoted from the official competition website. 1. Pause in Mid-Season The Premier League has been known as a league that knows no winter breaks. At Christmas and New Year, the wheels of competition keep going. Starting in the 2019/2020 season, the Premier League will apply a break in the middle of the season. They don't call it winter break, but mid-season player break. Not at the end of the year until the turn of the year, the rest period will be in February 2020 between 8-15. However, that does not mean there will be no competition at that time. Of the 10 matches, five will be played each weekend on the 8th and 15th of February. 2. Head-to-Head Rules The Premier League has been using goal difference rules if there are two teams that have the same points. If the goal difference is the same, then only go down to the number of goals produced. If there is no difference, then a playoff will be conducted. Starting in the 2019/2020 season, the Premier League will use head-to-head. If two or more clubs have the same number of points, goal difference and goal productivity - which determines champions, tickets to European competition or relegation - then the head-to-head record will be used to determine position in the standings. The team that collects the most points in a head-to-head duel will be in a higher position in the standings. If it's still the same, then the team that scores more away goals will occupy a higher position in the standings. When head-to-head still can not determine, then the playoff will be held in a neutral place. 3. Video Assistant Referee (VAR) When European leagues had used Video Assistant Referee (VAR) last season, the Premier League had not implemented it. Starting in 2019/2020, the Premier League will use the technology. All 380 matches will be monitored via VAR. A referee will monitor the match through a number of screens at the VAR Hub in London. VAR will only be used for 'obvious mistakes' or 'serious incidents that have been missed' in four situations that can change matches: goals, penalty decisions, direct red cards, misidentification of players. However, the final decision remains in the hands of the referee who leads the match. In stadiums with large screens, VAR also makes it possible to display videos relating to the incident being reviewed. 4. Goalkeepers who face Penalty must stand at the goal line From 2019/2020, the goalkeeper who faces a penalty must at least place one foot on the goal line. Or, if you jump, the keeper must stay parallel to the goal line. The goalkeeper is also not allowed to stand behind the goal line when penalty kicks. Meanwhile, players who win penalties and injuries in the process, have a chance to become executors. They are allowed to get quick treatment and then take a penalty, instead of leaving the field and can not be the executor. 5. Yellow and Red Cards for Managers The manager and team officials must maintain a stand on the sidelines if they do not want to get a yellow or red card from the referee. Team officials will be red-carded if proven to be bad. If the offender cannot be identified, then the card will be given to the senior coach in the technical area - usually the manager or trainer - as the person in charge of the team official. 6. Rules for Substitution The new protocol related to the substitution will be applied in the 2019/2020 Premier League. To minimize the potential for wasting time, players who are pulled out must leave the field at the closest point from the edge of the field. Exceptions will only be applied if the referee gives an indication that the player may leave the field quickly in the midline or in a different direction for safety or injury reasons. Once replaced, players must be in the technical area or dressing room. 7. Calf Fence When Free Kick Goalkeepers who face free kicks will no longer face 'intruders' on the posse built by the defender. In previous seasons, players from teams that received free kicks could stand between the posse of opposing players to harass or block the goalkeeper's view. Starting 2019/2020, that will not be allowed. When a posse is built by three or more players, players from the opposing team are prohibited from being within one meter. If the rule is broken, the referee will give an indirect free kick. 8. Handball Starting 2019/2020, goals created via handball or handball in the process will not be validated. Whatever the conditions, intentionally or unintentionally, the goal will be annulled. But more lax rules will be applied for bouncing balls. If a ball hits a hand after hitting anyone's body, it will not be considered a handball.
