Revealed: Why Jose Mourinho is fuming about Liverpool’s EPL fixture list

Everybody associated with Premier League football clubs received some big news on Thursday as the fixture lists for the 2018/19 season were released.

Every year when the fixtures are released all managers worth their salt usually find something to moan about, and one man who loves a good moan more than most is Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho.

What has irked the Old Trafford boss so much this time around is not a tough run of fixtures for his own team, but rather the schedule handed out the his clubs arch rival Liverpool.

It has been well documented that teams that compete in the Champions League regularly suffer poor results in their next Premier League fixture – especially when that follow up fixture is away from home.

Liverpool have been handed six home games directly after UCL fixtures, whereas Man United, Man City and Spurs have all been scheduled with a split three home and three away games.

According to the Mirror Mourinho is fuming over this perceived favouritism towards Jurgen Klopp’s side and plans on making a major fuss about it once he returns from his money spinning spell as a Word Cup pundit with state owned Russian TV.
