First it was Jose Mourinho of Manchester United and now it’s Arsene Wenger of London rivals Arsenal.
It looks to me like Mourinho and Wenger are already trying to create excuses ahead of time if their teams fail to perform over the festive period.
Wenger also thinks Chelsea have the advantage over the festive period because Chelsea have more days to rest.
Wenger said: “It’s a bit surprising because I don’t completely understand the organisation of the fixtures.
“This week we have eight days without a game. After that, some teams play on the 26th and the 1st, so they have a complete week’s break over Christmas, which is unusual.
“Then suddenly you play on the Ist and then the 3rd, just 48 hours later.
“I don’t know if it’s the TV companies or the Premier League who have decided that, but it’s completely unusual.”
