Manchester City are favourites to beat Manchester United to a top-four spot in the Premier League due to their absence from Europe, claims José Mourinho.
“They play now one game a week until the end of the season while we have the [Europa League] semi-finals which are very important for us,” Mourinho said.
“Obviously to play one match per week brings teams and players to other levels, so it’s more difficult for us but we are going to try.”
Mourinho continued: “It doesn’t matter what happens in terms of titles we win or don’t win.”
“I always feel that the season is very important for me, the players and the club.”
“I would say this can be the first season of the next five or six or seven. It can be the first season of better years.”
