Liverpool will rely on squad rotation for Europa campaign

Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe admits squad for their Europa League campaign can be expected, starting at Hearts on Thursday night.

Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson have all remained behind on Merseyside to rest ahead of Sunday's visit of Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City.

"That's the way you've got to look at it," he said.

"With the squad and the players we have got here it's fantastic so you have to rotate the players because you play on a Saturday, then a Thursday and a Sunday, so it's an opportunity for all the players to perform.

"One minute you are in the Europa League and the next we will be playing Manchester City, then it's the second leg against Hearts followed by Arsenal.

"There are some fantastic games and teams who you want to play against. These are games we can't wait for."
