Mourinho fears Red menace.

Byline: MARTIN LIPTON

JOSE MOURINHO claims Liverpool are the title danger side because they are the only contenders not liable to a spring meltdown.

The Chelsea boss believes the imminent return of the Champions League could destabilise any of the current top three.

Arsenal and Manchester City face their titanic first legs against Bayern Munich and Barcelona respectively next week, then Chelsea go to Galatasaray in a fortnight.

Mourinho suspects it is a wild card factor that could yet see Liverpool emerge top of the pile by May.

He said: "People are asking if Arsenal might fall apart after what happened at Liverpool, but it can happen to any one of the three of us - any one.

"But not Liverpool, because they have this stability of playing one match a week. If they lose a match or have an injury, everything is more stable.

"For all of us involved in the Champions League and Premier League race, facing match after match, you do find the concentration and the focus is split."
