Carabao Cup set for major rule change that could benefit top clubs like Tottenham from Round 4

The 5 substitute rule is set to be implemented in the Carabao Cup which could be a major boost for Tottenham Hotspur

According to Daily Mail (h/t Football.london), based on the backing by Manchester City, Carabao Cup is set to reinstate the 5 substitute rule which could be of great help for Tottenham Hotspur.

This rule of having the option of five substitutes in a match was implemented when ‘Mission Restart’ was taking place and players were getting used to sustained periods of time on the pitch. It was eventually trashed as the matches went along and teams came back on track.

The top clubs have argued that the hectic schedule of several competitions across Europe and England take their toll on players. This could be really welcoming news for the Lilywhites who can suitably rotate their players and preserve the fitness of core players.

The 5 substitute rule is set to be implemented in the Carabao Cup again which could be a major boost for top clubs like Tottenham Hotspur.

There is no confirmation of this yet but 13 of the 16 clubs that are still in the competition have shown their support in favour of the 5 substitute rule, which is likely to be implemented from Round 4. This kind of backing may help change the EFL’s stance on it.

This could also help the younger players in the squad get more quality game time to develop their skills and talent. At the same time, one could argue that it would favour the bigger clubs who generally possess more squad depth as compared to the smaller clubs who have to make do with restricted resources.

This move could certainly help reduce the injury risk and fitness problems of the players who are forced to play across different competitions not only for their club but also for their country during the international break. Nuno Espirito Santo would be delighted to hear this news as it would also allow him to give several fringe players more opportunities to prove their worth in the competition.
