Five subs allowed for remainder of Carabao Cup
Manchester City and the other three teams contesting the Carabao Cup semi-finals and final will be allowed to make five substitutions per game, the English Football League has confirmed.
Up until the last-four stage, regulations had been kept in line with the Premier League, with the substitution limit at three.
As was the case during the resumption of the 2019/20 Premier League season, coaches will be limited to three opportunities to use their five substitutions during the 90 minutes.
However, if a Carabao Cup match were to go into extra-time, one additional opportunity to use up the five changes would be permitted.
The Carabao Cup semi-finals have been reduced from two legs to one this season, with a more congested fixture schedule amid the coronavirus pandemic taken into account.
