I'd rather he did not, as I'd rather have him available against Spurs at the weekend. Also want him fit for the next run of games after that (Everton then Arsenal) and don't want any excuses that he needs to be rested.
I understand and accept the rotation policy, and have defended it many times on this board. But also think the league is more important than the CL, and the next 3 games will be critical. 3 wins put us at or very near the top. 3 poor results, and we will be in catch up mode, which is not where we need to be. Besides, its time for Crouch to prove everyone wrong, and score at least 2 tonight.
