Thewill come under increased pressure to allow five substitutes per team, per game after football's law-making body backed a proposal for the temporary rule to become permanent.
A proposal to make the increase from three to five substitutes permanent was supported at a meeting of the International FA Board (IFAB) on Wednesday.
In a statement, the IFAB said: 'Following a number of requests from confederations, associations, leagues and other key stakeholders for this option to be introduced permanently in the Laws of the Game (2022/23 edition), FAP-TAP today recommended that competitions should be able to decide on increasing the number of substitutes according to the needs of their football environment, while the current number of substitution opportunities (three plus half-time) should stay the same.'
Liverpool thrash shambolic Man Utd to pile pressure on Ole
Ten-man Manchester United suffered one of their worst defeats in recent memory as rivals Liverpool piled pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 5-0 thrashing.United's performance was nothing short of a shambles as Liverpool feasted on some inept defending and questionable tactics, going ahead after five minutes through Naby Keita's low finish having been released through on goal.
The move would still allow competitions to opt for only three subs but it would increase pressure on the Premier League to follow suit.
The temporary rule was first introduced in May 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to allow teams to use five substitutes, instead of the standard three, to support player welfare amid a congested fixture schedule.
In May, IFAB said the temporary amendment will remain in place until December 31, 2022, 'for all top-level competitions', with its implementation at the discretion of individual competition organisers.
Top European leagues and UEFA's major competitions adopted the rule after the 2019-20 season was extended into July and August, respectively, due to the pandemic.
However, the Premier League was the only top league in Europe to revert to a maximum of three substitutes in a condensed 2020-21 season, even as managers such as Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola voiced concerns about player fatigue.
