EPL: Premier League introduces new rules that will affect Chelsea, Man United, Arsenal, others

The International Football Association Board, IFAB, on Tuesday approved new rules and changes ahead of the 2019/2020 season that will affect Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and other remaining clubs in the English top-flight league.

The 2018/2019 Premier League campaign finished in May this year with Manchester City claiming the title.

The new rules affect: Celebrations, Head-to-head records, Scoring from a goalkeeper’s throw, Free-kick walls, Goal-kicks. These alterations will have a huge impact on the Premier League clubs.

It is already certain that video assistant referee, VAR, will be used in the league next season.

The IFAB has clarified the situation as regards celebrations ahead of next season.

Celebrations:

The new rule state that a player can be booked for their celebration even if the goal is disallowed.

Head-to-head records:

The new rule state that if two clubs are tied on points, goal difference, goals for and goals against, then their place in the league will be determined by their head-to-head record. Previously, this situation would result in a play-off between the two sides.

Scoring from a goalkeeper’s throw:

The new rule state that if the ball goes into the opposition goal direct from a goalkeeper’s throw, a goal-kick will be awarded.

Free-kick walls:

The rule state that when there is a defensive wall of three or more defenders, the attackers are not allowed within one yard of the wall.

Goal-kicks:

The rule state that a goal-kick had to leave the area before being in play. That didn’t used to be an issue; goalkeepers almost always kicked the ball long into midfield where an aerial duel would take place near the halfway line.
