Five substitutions will be allowed in games when the Premier League restarts on June 17, it has been decided at the latest league meeting.

The 20 member clubs met on Thursday to discuss a range of measures building towards the planned return to action later this month.

It has been decided that, for the remainder of the 2019/20 season, the number of substitutes used during a match will increase from three to five players.

Shareholders also approved for clubs to increase the maximum number of substitute players on the bench from seven to nine for the rest of the 2019/20 season.

FIFA proposed the substitutions rule change to IFAB, which is responsible for the laws of the game, as players are likely to be asked to play matches in a condensed period of time during the summer months.

Teams will be limited to three opportunities during matches to make their substitutions – as well as half-time – in a bid to prevent unnecessary stoppages
