It's hard to find much to complain about with Jose Mourinho of late, but those looking for something to get annoyed with the manager about can usually find something. Over the past several weeks, the lack of squad rotation has been something many have commented on, especially with a busy holiday period coming up.
Jose Mourinho acknowledged on Friday that some of his squad might need some rest, confirming that he plans to rotate a bit over the next several weeks:
Jose: 'I don't think any one player will play all six matches (between now and 1 January), maybe some will play five.' #CFC

This is probably good news for guys like Andre Schurrle, Filipe Luis, and Ramires, who should all see some extra time in short order because of the fixture congestion. Here's hoping they use that time to force Mourinho to use them more in the future.
