Chelsea boss Mourinho: Liverpool contenders for lack of Euro action

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho feels Liverpool are genuine title challengers. The Reds' lack of European football is an advantage, says Mourinho.

"Liverpool are in a similar situation to us. They didn't start the season as top favourites, they have a couple of very experienced players, like Stevie Gerrard and the central defenders.

"They are also a very young team and developing, with a manager who is very good. But the fact they don't play Champions League is very important for them.

"When the Champions League comes, it's a big thing for the other teams. Liverpool only play one match every week, and that makes a real difference at the end of the season, March to May. This can play a big role."
