Pellegrini says Lack of cup commitments gives Liverpool edge in league


Pellegrini says Lack of cup commitments gives Liverpool edge, League leaders Liverpool, who have 61 points from 24 games, can go five clear of second-placed City with a win at West Ham on Monday and the Chilean believes the Merseyside club are in the driver's seat as they chase a first league title since 1990.

"It's more easy for the team that is involved in just two competitions, compared to the team that is involved in four," Pellegrini told reporters.


"City have to play the final of the Carabao (League) Cup which will suspend a game. If they make the semifinal of the FA Cup, they must suspend another game.

"They have midweek with the Champions League, so it's not easy to compete in all the competitions."
