Mourinho Protests Biased Fixtures

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has protested fixtures bias which according to him favours his former club, Chelsea in this festive period.
Mourinho is dissatisfied with the fact that the  Antonio Conte’s side  will play their three seasonal games over 10 days, compared to eight days for United and Arsenal and seven for Liverpool.
Chelsea already benefit from not being involved in European football and Mourinho feels their kinder Christmas schedule gives them an additional advantage.
“Why? I don’t know either” Mourinho said when asked if he could explain the inconsistency.
“I’m not speaking about Chelsea; it happened the same with Liverpool a couple of years ago and this year too. (But) a team not playing in European competitions has a big advantage for sure.”
 “If on top of that when there is a first possibility of congestion with fixtures, if in that period they don’t have it, obviously it makes a difference.”
 “You don’t need to be a scientist to understand that to play with one day’s rest is different to playing with four days’ rest. It’s completely different.”
“For me, the point is why? But over the years nobody really answered me because I had this also when I was in Chelsea.”
