In a rather surprising twist, the Premier League is set to enable a monumental rule change, one which fans, players and coaches alike have been clamoring for. According to The Times, the Premier League will institute a new rule in the 2022-23 season that will enable clubs to make as many as five substitutions.

This is something that the larger clubs in the Premier League have long been pushing for, but smaller clubs were opposed to the idea, suggesting it would create an unfair advantage. The argument was that the larger clubs, who have more spending power and more quality depth on the roster, would be given an edge with the new rule.
