Chelsea Will 'Rotate' Against City
Rafael Benitez says his side are used to his 'Fantastic rotation'.
Rafael Benitez: "We have played around nine games a month, so we have played more games than anyone in Europe.
"But we knew that before the game (against Prague) so I rested some players so hopefully the players we use will be fine and we can keep the energy.
"When you play two games a week in two different competitions and you rest a few players and you win they will say 'Fantastic rotation' but if you lose they say 'Why are you resting these players'.
"We will change some of them against City, that is very clear because we have to do it and that is the way if you are a top side, because the club is successful that is part of the price that you have to pay and we are really pleased to be paying this price.
"Obviously as a manager you want your players, and especially your strikers, scoring a lot of goals.
"But Fernando Torres is doing a great job for the team. He is training hard and, I will say it again because I'm convinced, he is doing a great job for the team and he will score goals.
"When you analyse players, with strikers it is easy to say 'How many goals' but when you're playing with 11 players they all have to do their jobs and part of the job for Fernando is to create space and to put players in good positions with his movement."
