The Blues boss is frustrated with the Premier League for not moving the match to either Friday or Saturday as they prepare for the Champions League semi-final second leg with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
Mourinho said after Tuesday nightâ€™s 0-0 draw in Madrid that he would â€˜play the players who are not going to play on Wednesdayâ€™ in the league fixture at Anfield on the weekend.
It suggests that Mourinho is prioritising Europeâ€™s premier club competition over the domestic title which sees his side sitting five points in arrears of the Reds with three fixtures remaining.
Reportedly, Mourinhoâ€™s plans were discussed with chief executive Ron Gourlay, sporting director Michael Emenalo and chairman Bruce Buck and given the all-clear by owner Roman Abramovich as the Blues strive to clinch their third European title in a row following the 2012 Champions League triumph and last seasonâ€™s Europa League win.
