Jose Mourinho says City are favorites for the title

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has tried his hand at giving Premier League football tips by naming rivals Manchester City as this year’s favorites to win the Premier League. The former Real Madrid and Porto manager is currently enjoying his second stint at Stamford Bridge, and with his side sitting third in the league the Portuguese manager has moved to put the pressure on his rivals.

The Blues take on high-flying Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in tomorrow’s much anticipated league match, with supporters across the world eager to prove their Superbetting credentials. Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool have been running rampant to start this season, and currently sit just five points back of league leaders Manchester City, with a game in hand.

“Man City are the big, big, big favorites,” Mourinho told Sky Sports ahead of Sunday’s clash against the Reds. ”Liverpool are on holidays one season: one week to prepare a match, play the match, one more week to prepare the next match. This is an advantage, an unbelievable advantage.

“And Man United, in spite of being a few points behind, are the reality of the last years.

“Arsenal are like us. For many years they’ve not been at the top of the league. Chelsea won the league a few years ago, but in the last two leagues were 25 and 14 points off the leaders.

“For us and for Arsenal we have to try and do the best we can. We’ll do our job, we’ll try to finish top four. And if we manage to be in the top four, let’s see what we can do (in terms of the title).”

Liverpool’s good form has been in large part down to the excellent play of Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, who leads the Premier League in goals this season with a stunning tally of 19 league goals in just 13 appearances.

Chelsea, meanwhile, will be hoping that Belgian sensation Eden Hazard can continue his good form, as the midfielder leads the club in both scoring and assists entering 2014.
