Since English top-flight football managers frequently complain the number of games played, the rule change this season allowing them to make five replacements in a game should be well-received by many clubs.
Liverpool played the most games possible last season, 63 in total, as they advanced to three cup finals. Klopp was one of many influential voices advocating for an increase from three to five substitutions. The Premier League's failure to catch up to the other top leagues in Europe, according to the manager Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, has resulted in a wave of muscle injuries.
When the 2019–20 season began following the Covid–19 suspension, the Premier League did permit five changes, but returned after protests that the alteration favoured clubs with deeper squads. This particular rule of the game has seen numerous modifications over the past few years, and the permanent adjustment to five substitutions is merely the most recent.
