      City have lost 9 league games this season.

      Because subs are restricted to 3 timeslots, there is no more disruption than before, and I haven't noticed the extra subs used very much, in the EPL or other leagues.

      Since the days of 2 subs allowed max, the biggest clubs have always had the strongest squads, with enough quality replacements to throw on to get the desired result, if required. That will still be the case with this rule.

      Sorry but your logic on the extra subs makes no sense to me. Obviously a stronger bench benefits stronger teams but won't 5 subs benefit teams with stronger squads even more than 3 subs??

      It's a stupid decision to allow 5 subs anyone with cop on can see that.

      The 5 subs was brought in to protect player welfare, and given the amount of injuries since the resumption, it was the right thing to do. We alone, had 2 new injured players from the first game back. Others have got injured since. It's not like international friendlies, where the subs are every couple of minutes, destroying the rest of the game.

      4 subs are already available for teams who have to play extra time games. Now everyone can make a maximum of 5 subs at 3 intervals. It's not that one team can make 5 subs and another one can't. But the biggest clubs will always have the strongest squads, have better quality players available than other clubs, and will use them as required.

      Nope sorry I still don't agree with the 5 subs rule. I understand why it was brought in after the restart of course for fitness reasons due to the exceptional number of games that had to be played in a short space of time.

      But it should return to 3 subs that can be made at any point in the game like it always was in the interest of fairness for smaller clubs who at times struggle to even get 8 players on a bench.

      Fair play to Sterling, before the restart he’d been well off the standard he was for the last couple of seasons, now he has 8 goals and is on for his 2nd hat trick since the restart. 19 in the league for him now.

      Yeah all set up for an interesting final day. Watford have a good chance of points at an Arsenal side looking ahead at the Cup final but Villa have it in their hands.

      Any club having four managers in a season deserve everything they get so hopefully Watford go down.

      Watford have no chance, that team is fu**ed, no confidence, no belief. I think Villa secured survival tonight.

      It certainly wasn't maximum effort, will be interesting to see how they play against Watford, they won;t want 2 loses son the bounce going into the FA Cup final and I'd imagine they dislike Watford a bit more than Villa ;-)

      Arsenal will batter Watford they hate those sh*t kickers. While most have a soft spot for Villa.
