“It can be Richarlison, sometimes. There is no doubt about this.

“This is a really important period, we are going to play every three days against really important teams: Chelsea, Leicester, Arsenal, Manchester United.

“All the players will be involved. I haven’t rotated the players a lot when we had only one game a week.

“But the fact we have a game every three days, I am going to rotate the players, as I did in the first period of the season when we played a lot of games and won all the games.

“I have confidence that playing every three days, we can manage the situation better than once a week.”
