The fight for top tier placement going into the second half of the season involves Premiership titan clubs who will battle this weekend - including Chelsea and Manchester United.

"Arsenal and Manchester City are the top two teams," said Mourinho. "City have the ammunition and Liverpool have a fantastic chance because they are not in European competition.

"Man United are Man United. Eleven points is a big gap but I believe they'll push all the way.

"We play against the champions. We play Manchester United, not a team 11 points behind the leaders.

"I've played many big matches and this is what my experience tells me. A team that appears to be in the most difficulty can be the most dangerous."

"There is no reason to have sympathy for Moyes," he said. "He has a fantastic job and is very stable.

"The club gave him fantastic trust, it's a club with a fantastic culture who believe in the manager. He will at least have the time of his contract to build a team and reach success for many years. He has a fantastic job and needs no sympathy."

"We are not desperate to win the title, I keep saying the same," he said. "We want to build a team for the future, find a transition between the Chelsea of the last decade and Chelsea of the next decade. But we will try to fight for the title until the end.

"Everyone's going to lose matches I believe. Let's see what is going to happen unless Man City win every game and kills everyone with 20 points difference."

New signing Nemanja Matic will not start on Sunday.

"Matic is not starting the game. Branislav Ivanovic I don't think can play. Frank Lampard has a chance as he is training," he said.

"Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Another Villa fan arrives into the world!"

Premier League: Liverpool 4-0 Fulham

Premier League: Liverpool 4-0 Fulham

There were eight Premier League clashes today, Saturday.

The four goals came from Martin Skrtel, Steven Gerrard, Luis Suárez and Stewart Downing.

Rodgers was delighted with his players' reaction including Downing..

"I pointed out that he was an England player two years ago and if he couldn't get in our team this season it was time for him to move on. Since that conversation his response has been quite outstanding. I thought he was brilliant in every aspect of his game and if he keeps playing like that he'll be going nowhere."

Fulham boss Martin Jol said, "We need more conviction" and there will be a few Cottagers more than willing to convict after this. The poverty of their performance was such that the margin would have been doubled but for some notable second-half saves by Mark Schwarzer, especially to deny Suárez.

Rodgers Disappointed with Liverpool's Loss to Aston Villa

 

Liverpool 1-3 Aston Villa

Brendon Rodgers Disappointed with Liverpool's Loss to Aston Villa

Liverpool boss Rodgers hopes the forthcoming transfer window will provide the means to his goal - with new signings next month.

'That was probably as disappointing as we've been here but I couldn't put my finger on it,' he said.

'It is a strange thing football. We were talked up all week about us being top-four material but we know within the group we still have a long way to go.

'There is going to be steady progress and there are going to be steps forward, like in the last few weeks, and a step backward like yesterday.

'We looked at the first six months to assess: we know we need some support and hopefully we can get that in.

'We understand the process as well but the most important thing is to learn from it (the defeat).

'The thing we've learned from Saturday is that you can't ever be complacent.'

'You have to be at full tilt every week. If we do that we have a great chance of getting the points but if we don't you can get punished.

'The challenge for us now is to have a good week's training and come back next Saturday and hopefully get three points and get on the upward curve again.

The return of Liverpool's top-scorer Luis Suarez failed to spark the Reds.

Suarez earned a yellow card for dissent. Suarez was booked for despite just returning from a suspension for five yellow cards. Considering he had just served a one-match ban for picking up five cautions.

'He is a passionate lad. I didn't think he deserved to be booked but he had a couple of incidents he was protesting about which went unpunished,' said Rodgers.

'I would never take that passion out of the game. That is what makes him the player he is.

'He's picked up some bookings this season but some of those were needless by the referees - like at Sunderland where he was booked for diving and it wasn't a dive.'

Villa manager Paul Lambert was impressed as his side extended their unbeaten run to five matches.

'We feel when we are on song we are a good side,' he said.

'You always go into every game thinking you can win but I also know Liverpool were in a rich vein of form and playing really well and we knew Suarez was going to come back.

'They will always have the belief we can win games and I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing them perform the way they do and they are getting better and better every game.

'I've always said if you don't give someone an opportunity how do you know?

Luis Suarez - FC Liverpool Tickets

Former Liverpool chief Damien Comolli says Luis Suarez should be regarded among the world's best players.

Suarez signed with Liverpool FC for £22 million away from Ajax.

"Suarez is in a group of players behind Messi and Ronaldo. If you take those two out of the frame and think of how much we could have got for him then he is in that second group of players," said Comolli.

"He is a top player, a top person. It is rare to see someone who creates as much as he does and scores as many as he does.

"When we signed him I said he is a 15 to 18-goals-a-season player in the Premier League, but then he will give you so much more in terms of what he creates."

Liverpool are in 12th place in the Premier League with 22 points. Man United remain on top of the Premiership table with 42 points. Man City is in 2nd with 36 points, Chelsea is in 3rd with 29 points, Everton in 4th with 27th points, and Tottenham Hotspur is in 5th with 26 points.
