English Premiership

Advantage Liverpool! Mourinho yells

MOURINHO-SNOWLONDON, England, February 14- Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has once again played down his side’s Premier League title chances, and believes Liverpool may have the advantage in the race due to their absence from European competition.

The English top-flight campaign is turning out to be one of the tightest in recent memory, most notably at the top where the Blues, Arsenal and Manchester City are all separated by just three points.

And while Mourinho’s side currently top the standings, the Portuguese tactician has been adamant his team are outsiders for the title.

He also added that Liverpool, only one point behind City in fourth, could have the edge, with the Reds’ absence from the Champions League meaning they can put more focus into the domestic campaign.

Mourinho told Sky Sports News: “When I say we’re not the top candidate everyone thinks ‘here he is again, with what you like to call the mind games’.

“But it’s just my feeling.

“The league is amazing – it is difficult for every one of us.

“There are teams with more potential than others, obviously. There is another, like Liverpool, with a big advantage with the fact that they don’t play in the Champions League.

“Playing in this is going to take concentration and energy from the teams that are involved in it.

“I think it will be good fun.

“Maybe we lost two points or won one point against West Brom and I think it will be like this until the end of the season.

“All teams need points for their objectives – some for relegation, some for the Champions League, so the fight for points will be harder.”
