Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has urged his players to focus all of their efforts on their upcoming Premier League clash with Fulham.
With the Reds unable to earn Champions League qualification and having already claimed a Europa League berth next term, Dalglish is keen to remind his players that there is still plenty left to play for this season.
Liverpool have an FA Cup final meeting with Chelsea to look forward to on Saturday, and Dalglish sees Tuesday’s home clash against Martin Jol’s side as a last chance for his players to earn selection for the Wembley showpiece.
“We’ve said to all of the players we want to give you the best possible chance to be available for selection on Saturday,” Dalglish told the club’s official website.
“We want the strongest possible squad we can to pick from for Saturday’s game, and there are many ways we can do it.
“If someone needs a break we’ll give them a break and if someone needs a game we will give them a game, because every single one of them are more than capable of playing in a cup final for this club.”
The Scot added that he is yet to finalise his plans for the FA Cup showdown, reiterating that the Fulham match will be an audition for players wanting to feature.
“It’s going to be a difficult selection as it always is but it’s a difficult selection for tomorrow night as well,” Dalglish said.
“Everybody will be treated fairly and equally and everybody will be allowed to put their CV in for selection on Saturday.”
