Liverpool boss Benitez claims bias over lunchtime kickoff

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is furious with tomorrow's lunchtime kickoff against Portsmouth.

And Benitez believes title rivals Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have been given an unfair advantage over his leaders as they have had more time to recover.

Benitez hit the roof after discovering Liverpool face further 12.45pm away games after England's crunch Euro 2008 qualifiers with Russia next month and Croatia in November.

The Spaniard blasted: "I will talk with the Premier League about this.

"They'll know my idea. We'll check if someone can hear us.

"I don't know if we can change things but we'll try. We'll speak to them as soon as possible.

"I need to talk with our chief executive Rick Parry and we will analyse how to progress with this situation."
