Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes Premier League scheduling has given Manchester City the upper hand in the race for top flight supremacy.
With just three points separating them from leaders Chelsea, and with a far superior goal difference, Manuel Pellegrini’s side know their fate is in their own hands.
Mourinho believes that playing catch-up will work in City’s favour, as they will know exactly what is required of them before taking to the field.
“What affects the Premier League is the change of the fixtures. City play later after the other teams fighting for the title, so it is easier.”

Chelsea lead the way at present, one point ahead of the chasing pack, but were held to a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion in their last Premier League outing and saw squad morale take a hit on Saturday as they were dumped out of the FA Cup by City.
