It will be interesting to see the team selected by Roberto Di Matteo to face Blackburn in the last home game of the Premier League season.
The second string that played at Liverpool last Tuesday may well be given the chance, subject to availability, to make a claim to be part of the squad to play Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.
Blackburn are a club in turmoil and are poor travellers to the capital but with nothing to play for the pressure is off on the younger players and are capable on the big stage to cause an upset as they did at Old Trafford.
The prospect of not competing in Europe’s elite for the first time since Roman Abramovich's takeover is looking increasingly possible as Bayern must be favourites on home soil.
Di Matteo needs a positive result against Rovers but will he risk injury to key players with so many
suspensions for the final, it is doubtful.
