The Agenda: Premier League rule change set to boost Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and Co | Five years of James Milner

The Premier League has announced that teams can now name nine substitutes on the bench and bring five players on during matches – and that could be good news for Liverpool. The Liverpool ECHO’s LFC correspondent Paul Gorst joins Matt Addison to explain why – with the likes of Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and Neco Williams among those set to benefit the most. Another player who could get more minutes because of the rule change is veteran midfielder James Milner, who signed for the Reds exactly five years ago today from rivals Manchester City. So Matt and Paul discuss what must go down as Liverpool’s best-ever free transfer. Sorry Gary McAllister!
