Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho suggested Chelsea have the advantage over Manchester United ahead of the FA Cup tie between Manchester United and Chelsea.
Mourinho claims Chelsea have the advantage because Chelsea are just focused on the FA Cup with the league already wrapped up for Chelsea.
“In this moment, I think the real advantage was before because when you arrive in a new team and you have to bring your idea, your philosophy, you make a lot of work, you need a lot of time to work all week, I think this is the real advantage,” Conte said.
“Now to watch Champions League or Europa League on TV is not good for me or the players because we want to stay there to play for something important.
“Champions League is important – the top – but the Europa League is also strong. To watch Wednesday and Thursday is not good.
“We have this situation because of last season, not because someone invented it. Last season was very bad.”
