Chelsea boss slams fixture scheduling which shows ‘fake league table’

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has once again claimed the Premier League table is fake with his side sitting top at present, as reported by talkSPORT.

The Blues once again climbed to the summit yesterday after thrashing Stoke at home, but Liverpool will reclaim that spot with a win away at West Ham today.

Manchester City have two games in hand on their title rivals and so Mourinho feels the table does not show a realistic visual of the situation.

The Chelsea boss thinks that City’s late season fixtures are tarring English football and believes all the teams should go into the final few weeks of the season playing the same amount of games.

“The situation is the same. The table is again fake. The table is again with lots of matches in hand.

“You look to the top part of the table and, some teams, they have more matches than others. You look to the relegation area and it’s exactly the same.

“In the top of the league we cannot say we need X points to be champions.

“This, in the best league in the world, I don’t think is the best image we are giving and it’s not the best situation.

“To play matches in hand in the last week of the season, I don’t think is adapted to this top football country.”
