Jose Mourinho has claimed that Liverpool have a big advantage in the title race because of their lack of European football.

The Reds are currently fourth in the Premier League table heading into Wednesday’s clash at Fulham following their 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal.

And Mourinho feels that Liverpool are benefiting from not competing in either European competition this season.

“If they lose a match or have an injury, everything is more stable,” Mourinho said after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday.

“People are asking if Arsenal might fall apart after what happened at Liverpool, but it can happen to any one of the three of us – any one – but not Liverpool, because they have this stability of playing one match a week.

“For all of us involved in the Champions League and Premier League race, facing match after match, you do find the concentration and the focus is split by the Champions League.

“You start to think about, ‘We don’t want to play this player because we have the Champions League [coming up]’ and ‘We want to rest this player or that one’. But none of us is free for that to happen.”
