Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has called on his players to keep their focus as they move quickly from game to game at a busy point in the season.
Speaking before Saturday evening's La Liga clash against Real Zaragoza at the Bernabeu, Mourinho said the players rested for Wednesday's 4-1 Copa del Rey win at Alcoyano were all returning.
He also stressed that he would not be keeping anyone back for next week's Champions League Group game against Borussia Dortmund because Manuel Jimenez's improving Zaragoza needed to be taken seriously.
"Zaragoza this season is not like last year - they are building their season calmly," Mourinho said. "They are a competitive team who are gathering points.
"To win, we will need to play well because, when we do not play well, we do not win. We need to make sure the game on Tuesday does not distract our attention. Zaragoza have a methodical, tactical, competitive coach."
Mourinho confirmed that full-back Alvaro Arbeloa was available after injury, but that Sami Khedira, Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo remained sidelined.
The versatile Alvaro Arbeloa should slot in at left-back on Saturday, allowing Michael Essien to move forward into central midfield in place of the suspended Xabi Alonso. With Khedira still suffering a thigh muscle problem, Luka Modric looks set to also start against Zaragoza, who are ninth in the table.
"I would love to have Khedira and Xabi available to play, but it is not a problem - we have other options," Mourinho explained. "That is why we have a squad. There are other players, and we will go out to get three very important points."
Mourinho claimed that, for him, the week's criticism of Madrid's Fabrica youth system was closed, but hinted it was unlikely that any of the canteranos who played in the Copa victory, such as 17-year-old goalscorer Jose Rodriguez, would feature in league action this weekend.
"For me, the most important thing is to win, and I think for Madrid fans it is the same - the most important is to win games," he said.
"Madrid's last three European Cups were won with two or one canteranos. Against Alcoyano we won, while being able to play some younger players and give Jose his debut.
"It was perfect, but perfect because we won. I have not spoken especially with Jose - he needs to keep working and playing."
