It was suggested at Thursday’s press conference that the boss might be concerned that his young charges will suffer a hammering against Gerard Houllier’s in-form Liverpool.
But he replied: “We might go to Anfield and get a result and that would be a lovely achievement.
“You prepare for any game with what you’ve got in front of you, the team you are playing and what you can put out. That will be no different.
“We’re going there with a young side gaining a lot of experience, whether we pinch a point, or get beaten heavily. That would be an experience as well.
“The squad at the moment will pick itself in the sense of who is available.
“These games between now and the end of the season our hands are forced and it’s about looking at these players and giving them the experience.
“What the results end up is insignificant really. It’s about letting them play and hopefully being better players for it.”
Glenn Hoddle is prepared for all outcomes at Anfield on Sunday.
