Premier League clubs before the 2020/2021 season voted to revert back to three substitutes after using five substitute to conclude the 2019/2020 season.
Moyes joined Pep Guardiola, Frank Lamprd and Jurgen Klopp to ask for players welfare by reverting to five substitute.
The former West Ham manager while speaking ahead of their game against Fulham at the London Stadium said it’s time to look at reverting to five substitute.
Other leagues retained the rule of using five substituted brought in to assist clubs colour with the increased number of games due to the coronavirus.
“I recommended that we would vote for three substitutes but I have looked at it again due to the player welfare issue,” said Moyes.
“I really didn’t expect so many injuries. No parties have been willing to give anything up in terms of competitions or matches.
“So, while I still think it benefits bigger squads and clubs with bigger budgets, I would consider the change back.”
West Ham are also suffering, even though they are not involved in European competition, as top scorer Michail Antonio is set to miss Saturday’s London derby with Fulham with a hamstring injury.
The Hammers are 14th in the Premier League with eight points from their first seven games.
