The EFL Cup has dropped to the last four this week as the competition moves into the semi-finals

If the game ends in a draw after 90 minutes, extra time and then possibly penalties will be played

The EFL has announced that teams will be able to create FIVE subs per game for the remainder of the competition, but these will need to be created in the assigned opportunity periods

EFL said in a statement released on Monday: “Each team is only allowed to have a maximum of three options (other than half-time, full-time and half-time of overtime) to make substitutions during normal time

“However, if a tie goes into overtime, an additional option to use one or more substitutes is allowed, but only from the five eligible substitutes”

Currently, teams in the Premier League can only make three substitutions per game after clubs with five submarines voted against

Although leading figures in the league like Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have expressed their displeasure about it

“Everyone knows that 10 clubs voted against it. It wasn’t about advantages, it was just about the wellbeing of the players. And they voted against

“Pretty much only they voted against them around the world” I don’t know which other leagues have only three subs. There must be a good reason all these leagues and clubs are voting for it “

This decision was made in order to get as many fans as possible to the Wembley showdown, which starts at 4 p.m.

In a statement, the EFL said: “This season’s Carabao Cup Final has been postponed and will now take place on Sunday the 25th April 2021, with a kick-off at 4 p.m.”

“The goal of the league is to hold the final with as many fans as possible

“And it was therefore decided to move the final from its original date on Sunday the 28th February 2021, postponed to a later date in the year

“The number of fans allowed depends on the government guidelines in force at the time

“And it is to be hoped that moving the date to later in the year will give clubs and their fans the best opportunity to attend in person”
