Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says the Premier League should again allow five substitutions per game this season due to an increase in muscle injuries.
According to Guardiola, the number of muscle injuries has increased by 47% this year compared to the same period last season.
Premier League clubs voted against allowing five more substitutes in August for the 2020-21 season.
This rule was introduced when the 2019-20 season resumed after a suspension in June to protect the welfare of the players.
When asked whether the Premier League should return to deciding five replacements instead of three, the Guardiola replied that they should be 100 percent.
This season, the city was injured by several players, including Sergio Aghero, Gabriel Jesus, Benjamin Mendi and Nathan Ake.
This isn’t a club, Mr Guardiola added.
In the Premier League, players have 47% more muscle injuries than last season, which is due to the lack of preparation of most teams and the number of matches.
All leagues – Germany, Spain, everywhere – allow five substitutions and not one team to defend the players.
Let’s hope they can control and do what the rest of the world is doing, because we need to prepare for the pandemic situation.

This season, Fifa continued to allow the use of five reserve players in the league, but many members of the Premier League felt that this unfairly damaged the interests of the big clubs.
Other Premier League leaders supported the Guardiola’s call to repeal this rule.
Ole Gunnar Solskier, director of Manchester United, said I didn’t understand and I couldn’t believe the vote was against because we have to take care of the players.
I understand why the clubs voted against, but if you take a step back and think about these players and their mental and physical health, the only sensible solution would be to give us a few more opportunities to rest.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said the ball was thrown wrong when the clubs voted against five substitutes.
I’m not just talking about my club, but about every player who is challenged to play with injuries day in and day out, he said.
We have a big team here, but the pressure on the players, and that can certainly have a bigger impact this year than any other.
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce said soft tissue injuries prove the problem this season.
But we’re not alone, there are other teams who see this as a fight, he added.
Liverpool’s boss, Jürgen Klopp, said the packed material schedule made his side vulnerable to injury.
Problems in defending the title arose this week after Fabinho, who replaced Virgil van Dyck in midfield, joined the Dutch side.
October is like a normal December, and November is like a normal December, he said.
So December is still December, which means we already have the busiest schedule.
Everton director Carlo Ancelotti said the number of injuries was alarming.
After the international break we only have one match a week, which is not so bad for us, he said.
But for the teams in Europe it is very busy and therefore there are more injuries.
Former arsenal man and physiotherapist Gary Lewin from England told Radio 5 Live that the increase in injuries this season is due to a number of factors.
In previous seasons the players had a normal preseason, a normal weight training and a normal conditioning program, then they played regularly, but not like now, he said, every two or three days.
If you do not fully recover from the previous game, you will get tired and muscle injuries will get worse, because if you have tired muscles and burden them again, they will break.
