EFL Approves 5 Subs For Carabao Cup Matches

The EFL has approved five substitutions for the Carabao Cup semi-final and final matches.

This will come as a boost for the semi finalists, Tottenham, Brentford, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Premier League clubs have struggled to agree to the proposal which has attracted widespread criticisms from managers.

“Following consultation with the four clubs remaining in the competition, nine substitutes can now be named in the matchday squad, with five permitted to take to the pitch during the 90 minutes and extra time if applicable,” the EFL said in a statement.

Each team is only permitted a maximum of three opportunities (excluding half-time, full-time and half-time of extra time) to make substitutions during normal time. 

However, if a tie goes to extra time, an additional opportunity to use a substitute(s) will also be permitted but only from the five substitutes allowed.

Tottenham will host Brentford in the first semi-final on Tuesday night, while Manchester United and Manchester City will battle it out in the second semi-final on Wednesday night.

The final will take place on April 25 at the Wembley Stadium in London.
