Imagine if Klopp rotated in a semi-final against Utd or City. He would get absolutely slaughtered. When it gets to that stage unless you're playing very weak opposition (like Burton for example) most managers will go full strength. I should qualify this by saying that by rotation I mean mixing it up with a few kids, few peripheral squad players (Shaqiri etc) and a few first choice players). This is where City have a massive advantage over everyone - rotation to them means 11 players who as Jose said could probably challenge for the title or at least top 4.Then rotate in the semi final too if needed and also rotate in the Fa cup and easier league games. Better to do that then go out. I guess you fear being knocked out by us in the semi?
