    Suspensions
    This season, any cautions players receive will be specific to the competition they were playing in at the time. So, a yellow card in an FA Cup game, for instance, wouldn't count towards a suspension in the Premier League.
    However, red cards will apply across all competitions - although standard bans can now be decreased or increased in exceptional cases.
    Players will be banned after picking up five yellow cards (with a cut off after the first 19 games), 10 yellow cards (cut off 32 games) and 15 yellow cards by the end of the season.

    Manager behaviour
    The Premier League is eager to crack down on bad behaviour in the dugout this season. While there won't be red or yellow cards issued to coaching staff as in the EFL, managers will be penalised if they have to be consistently warned by referees.
    This season, four warnings from the referee will see a manager receive a one-match ban. If the manager goes on to pick up eight warnings through the season he'll be handed a two-match ban. Twelve warnings leads to three and 16 is an FA misconduct ban.

    No extra-time in League Cup
    Extra-time will no longer be played in the Carabao Cup this season, with matches level at 90 minutes going straight to a penalty shoot-out.

    VAR
    While VAR will not be used in the Premier League this season, it will be applied in FA Cup and Carabao Cup games played in Premier League stadiums. That will increase its usage to 60 games in 2018/19. There were just 19 games which used VAR in 2017/18. VAR can only be used at Premier League stadiums. Meanwhile, the Premier League plans to increase its testing of the system this season, as they continue to work towards eventually implementing VAR in the top flight in the future.

    Transfer Window
    The new Deadline Day rules, which saw the window for Premier League clubs close before the season began, will be discussed by clubs in September and October. This won't be a formal review, but a view on how successful the switch was will be taken and assessed.

    Technology in the technical area
    You may spot coaching staff playing on their iPads during matches this season after a new rule allowing technology to be used in technical areas was passed. While the tablets can't be used to argue about decisions with officials, it does allow coaches the chance to show tactical videos to substitutes or analyse live clips and data during the game.

    I thought that VAR thing was shit at the world cup... i thought France were gifted an extremely harsh Penalty in the final for a start...

    One thing it could have been used for and should have been used for is putting a stop to diving and rolling about...

    Sadly that never happened.

    VAR was right far more often than not. It still needs humans to interpret the reviews though and there is your weak link. However it's still far more preferable to relying on referees/linesmen, at a time when the game is faster, and there is far more cheating, than it ever was/had in the past.
