Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore is confident that the new Hawkeye system will work in the English game.

Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore is adamant that goal-line technology will be a success in the English game.

The Hawkeye system, which will give evidence as to whether the ball has crossed the line or not, has been installed in all 20 Premier League grounds ahead of the 2013-14 season.

"It's going to be an absolute decision," Scudamore told Sky Sports News. "There'll be no argument, it'll be fact and that's for the good of the game. There are seven cameras at each goal, and it's a very quick decision, within a second all the officials will know.

"The technical system will tell the referees and it's very simple, it either will or won't be over the line. If there was any doubt in my mind we wouldn't be doing it at all there's too much at stake."

The Goal Decision System will be demonstrated at Arsenal's Emirates ground today.
