Mourinho gives his verdict between Liverpool & Chelsea

EPL By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 14/04/2019

Jose Mourinho has waded in to give his opinion between the mouth-watering clash between Liverpool and Chelsea in the Premier League. 

Liverpool need the three points to remain in the course to win the title while Chelsea is a hunt for top four so the game is a huge decider of the season for both Jurgen Klopp's men and Maurizio Sarri' men.

“Liverpool-Chelsea in the Premier League is a big one, for many reasons,” he told RT.

“Liverpool, they have to win every match between now and the end of the season and wait for Man City to lose a couple of points.

“It’s a must-win for Liverpool. At the same time, Chelsea need points to finish top four.

“Manchester United is there, Spurs is there, Arsenal, despite their last defeat, are also there.

“Chelsea needs points. It’s a must-win for both. And to add something more to the game, the last time Liverpool were almost winning the title it was Chelsea who spoiled the celebration at Anfield.

“I’m pretty sure people have that in mind. For me, that’s the big game of the weekend.”

With five games of the season to play for Liverpool and six for City, the Reds are heaping pressure on Pep Guardiola’s side, who will win the title if they can pick up maximum points from now until May 11.

But along the way, City face tough games against Tottenham and Manchester United away from home.

“Chelsea needs points. It’s a must-win for both. And to add something more to the game, the last time Liverpool were almost winning the title it was Chelsea who spoiled the celebration at Anfield.

“I’m pretty sure people have that in mind. For me, that’s the big game of the weekend.”

Goals from Demba Ba and Willian, along with Steven Gerrard’s infamous slip, were enough to cap off a historic Premier League day denied the Reds the chance to win the title when they wee close last time.
