Liverpool have employed a rotation strategy throughout the season, which has intensified in recent months in order to see the side into the final of the Champions League.
It has brought mixed success; it has clearly worked in terms of getting Jurgen Klopp’s side through the round in Europe but it has weakened their league form, rendering them unable to mount a title challenge as well as putting the handbrake on their cruise into the Premier League’s top four.
Klopp’s plan to ensure his players do not play as many games has now, conversely, led him to a position where he must take even the 38th game of the league campaign seriously – while Manchester United and Tottenham have sewn up their Champions League spots with time to spare.
That has left the German with a conundrum; does he play his best team against Brighton on Sunday, needing just a point to secure a seat at Europe’s top table next season and risk another injury blow ahead of the Kiev showpiece on 26 May?
That’s what we asked you and the response was clear; 79 per cent of Reds want Klopp to go all out for the point needed to get into the Champions League.
