“He felt it in the game at Liverpool in the Cup. If you saw that game, you could see the last half hour it was hindering his performance but it felt like it could play on and obviously we couldn’t make any more changes.
“We didn’t involve him at the weekend to give them that sort of maximum rest, even though he was on the bench but he was never really going to be available to play.
“And then obviously, the other night he just felt it towards the end of the game. I just think the combination of games we’ve had affects the recovery time. It’s just a difficult period for players, especially for recovery.”
