The new rule will put a smile in the faces of managers such as Pep Guardiola who really wanted the five substitutions to be reinstated after it was previously used during the COVID-19 period.
All the premier league clubs have agreed that the five substitutions rule should be reinstated and it has also been decided that the teams will be able to make personal changes on three occasions with an additional chance at half time.
