Chief executive Richard Scudamore has announced the Premier League will review their medical procedures following Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest on Saturday evening to ensure stricken players receive the best possible care.

Scudamore praised officials and medical staff for saving Bolton midfielder Muamba's life during the club's FA Cup tie at Tottenham on Saturday. The level of care Muamba received after collapsing at White Hart Lane owed much to the fallout from the fractured skull suffered by Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech five-and-a-half years ago.

Speaking at the Sport Industry Breakfast club in London, Scudamore said: "Incidents and events shape policy, shape developments, shape progress. There are no guarantees but we will do whatever we can to improve."
