Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has expressed his unhappiness over unfair advantages enjoyed by Manchester City in the Premier League.
Aiming a dig at Pep Guardiola’s side, Mourinho claimed the runaway Premier League leaders have been handed an unfair advantage by playing their next match more than a day later than Manchester United.
Manchester United will face Burnley at Old Trafford on Tuesday but City, who lead the table with 13 points, won’t play again until Wednesday night when they travel to Newcastle.
Last Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Leicester was the first of four top-flight games in 10 days for United.
He told Sky Sports, “I’m not just saying about the privileged teams with six days to recover and to enjoy and to prepare for the next one, but also the ones with a little bit more (time) than us, for example the ones that play after tomorrow — that extra day means a lot.
“It means probably they are not working today, it means they can be back to work tomorrow and prepare for the next day. The problem that I see here is the difference between some teams.
“But what I call the December injuries in English football are arriving. Some players are leaving the pitch after 15-20 minutes, some others don’t resist for the 90.
“Of course, it depends on many factors, but we open the door for what I call the December injuries.”
