Liverpool and Tottenham will be able to name up to 12 substitutes for the Champions League final after UEFA announced a rule change, according to The Mirror.
Should the match go to extra-time, a fourth substitution will be permitted, after the usual three in normal time.
Last season, only seven substitutes per team were allowed to be named, with Danny Ings among those who missed out on being in the Reds’ matchday squad.
The rule is also in place for the Europa League final, and will be for the UEFA Super Cup as well, which the Reds will play in should they win a sixth European Cup.
The change will mean the likes of Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Alberto Moreno and Rhian Brewster will all be able to be named in the matchday squad, which might not have been the case under the previous regulations.
With better squad depth than Spurs, the change should benefit the Reds more than Mauricio Pochettino’s team, but that will depend on injury situations for both sides just prior to the game.
