& # 39; I am paid to make decisions based on what is good for our club, & # 39; he said. & # 39; I can't be sentimental. I have always been someone who likes to play in cupruns, but I am a manager, so my role is different.
& # 39; My role is to make decisions based on the schedule for our week. We played Sunday, we play Tuesday and we got away with managing our way through the Christmas period, which was very hectic.
& # 39; The demands of the game are now incredibly high and the working speed of the players in Bournemouth was incredible, so we need to get the recovery right and make sure we are ready for the game on Saturday.
& # 39; This is where other players get opportunities. I do not apologize for it and I do not apologize for it.
& # 39; Did I say that, do I respect cup competitions? Of course I do, but it has nothing to do with still being able to make decisions based on what I believe and what we believe if a club is right for us. It is clear that Premier League security is of the utmost importance. & # 39;
First team stars Ben Foster, Etienne Capoue, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Gerard Deulofeu and Troy Deeney are expected to miss the repetition.
