Clubs will now be permitted to make five substitutions from a nine-player bench for the remainder of the 2021/22 competition.
The new ruling comes into effect following a proposal from 14 of the 16 clubs remaining in this season’s Carabao Cup and comes into effect for the next round of ties.
Leeds are through to the fourth round and will take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in a game screened live on Sky Sports on Tuesday, October 26.
After consultation between the EFL Board, the Premier League and the two non-signatory clubs, an amendment has been made to Competition Rule 10.1.

The change was made after consideration of the proposal which highlighted concerns of a demanding fixture schedule over the coming months.
Clubs will have three opportunities during open play to make substitutions (not including half-time).
Multiple substitutions can be made during one opportunity.
For the semi final second leg and the final, an additional opportunity will be afforded during open play in extra time (not including 90 mins and half time in extra-time).
Unspent substitutions can be a carried over in extra time whilst the provision of concussion substitutes sits outside this process and can be made at any time.
