A power outage at Elland Road has led to the delay of Sunday’s Premier League match between Leeds United and Arsenal, with the match resuming 38-minute later.

Reuters says the power cut caused issues with the referees’ communications systems, leaving them unable to talk to the VAR.

After 10 minutes, following the booing of the stadium crowd, the referee asked the managers of both teams and to return to the changing room.

With a little more than a minute left on the clock, power was restored, and the referee certified that both VAR and goal line technology were operational.
