‘He’s done it again’, ‘We’re massive’ – Man City Fans react as Pep Guardiola gets his wish with Carabao Cup Rule Change


Pep Guardiola has his wish after the EFL confirmed five substitutions will be allowed for the remaining Carabao Cup games this season.

The Cityzens began their latest quest to retain the Carabao Cup last month as the Blues decimated League 1 side Wycombe Wanderers 6-1 at the Etihad stadium.

The Manchester City boss, who has been calling for five subs rule for several years, said it was “ridiculous” England is the only country that is still limited to three after his side thrashed Wycombe in one of the earlier rounds.

Fourteen of the 16 remaining clubs in the competition recently launched the proposal for the Carabao Cup, highlighting their concerns of the demanding fixture schedule to come over the coming months.

The changes, which have been made in full consultation between the EFL, Premier League and the two clubs who were not on board, will take effect in the next round – the fourth – which begins later this month.

Guardiola’s side this October will travel to London to face David Moyes’ impressive West Ham side, as the reigning Carabao Cup champions look to book their spot in the quarter-final stage for the fifth time on the spin.

In reaction to the news shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
