As many as that? Last time thought it was a lot closer.

The injuries thing is definitely overblown. For example if Boly has picked up a muscle injury that will be used in the stats despite him being well rested after having the weekend off.

Does fatigue increase risk of injury - yes. So tell Klopp to use the 3 subs he has available and stop playing Robertson every minute of every game (and bringing him on as a sub) when he’s literally bought Tsimikas in the summer.

Surely the number of subs on the bench will have to change to cover the 'concussion substitutes' which I think will happen

City unhappy the 5 subs thing didn’t happen even though Pep’s made 1 sub total in the last 3 games.

I wouldn't have thought so, concussions are rare in football and there will always be one sub spare. Doesn't need 9 at all, just gives the big clubs with big squads more options.

While they chose to reject the five substitute proposal, the Premier League clubs have voted in principle to introduce permanent concussion substitutions.

Teams will be able to use up to two additional replacements per game if players are suspecting of sustaining, or diagnosed with, a concussion.

The move comes after the International Football Association Board (IFAB) - which governs the laws of the game - approved the rule change on a trial basis on Wednesday.

The Premier League will now apply to IFAB to take part in the trial, which begins next month.

The FA have said they will allow 5 subs in FA Cup matches.

Vote for 5 subs was 10 10 - I assume Southampton, Brighton and Albion are hoping for loans from the big 6 so kissed ass

Not necessarily. Rugby League, for example, only has 4 subs and has a 10 minute HIA, where one of those 4 subs are used without affecting the interchange.

just a thought, but with some teams claiming covid related problems and getting their matches postponed, perhaps we should have done this too. Time then for our injured players to recover !!!!;)

Premier League to vote on PPG if season curtailed after 29 games played. We need to pick points up PDQ for obvious reasons and Villa will be in Champions League at this rate.
