Benitez, ahead of today's big match against Chelsea, said: "I'll wait until the last minute to name my team because I think it's better that way and I won't speak to any players about my decision.
"They know they must be ready all the time. Vladimir Smicer is a perfect example. He didn't play a lot but ended up scoring in the Champions League final.
"Our players must show me how good they are. They can go to a small club if they want to play in every match.
"At Liverpool we have to try to win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carling Cup."
