EPL managers push for return of five substitutions (See details)

Disgruntled Premier League managers could ask for the return of the five substitutes rule this season, despite the concept twice being rejected.
A growing number of managers are not happy they can only make three substitutions in 2020-21, after being allowed five when last season resumed.
The Premier League is the only major competition to return to three.
Some leading managers believe the current substitution limit is contributing to injury problems.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola have both said the decision is partly responsible for a spate of muscular injuries across the top flight.
BBC Sport understands the matter has been put to the 20 clubs twice – and on neither occasion did the proposal get the minimum requirement of 14 clubs to support it. On the last occasion, 11 clubs were in favour.
West Ham boss David Moyes said on Friday he had changed his mind after initially backing the return to three substitutes.
However, Aston Villa manager Dean Smith believes the Premier League should stick to allowing the use of three substitutes.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live after his side’s 3-0 win at Arsenal on Sunday, Smith said:
“I only made one change in the 88th minute. The intensity was there from our players.
“We haven’t got the biggest squad in the world and we have to manage our players.
“I can sympathise with the teams that are in Europe but there are some big squads out there.
“I made my feelings known from the off that I thought they were right to stay with the three subs rule and now we have we started with it, we should certainly continue with it.”
