The Carabao Cup semi-finalists will be able to make five substitutions in their matches this week in a move that will please Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
As well as being able to make five in-game substitutions, the EFL also confirmed on Monday that teams are allowed to select nine players on their substitutes’ bench.
As per the five substitution rules currently in place across certain parts of European football, the four clubs have just three opportunities to make substitutions excluding half-time, full-time and half-time in extra-time.
If either of the two semi-finals go to extra-time, then the teams will get an extra opportunity to make a substitution but cannot make more than five subs in the match.
The final of the 2020-21 EFL Cup has been rescheduled to 25 April 2021 at Wembley having originally been due to take place on 28 February. It has been put back in an attempt to have as many supporters in attendance as possible.
The winners of this season’s tournament will not qualify for the Europa League as in the past, but will instead go into the Uefa Europa Conference League, a new European competition.
