Cech shoulder Atletico Apr2014Jose Mourinho has given a hint that he might play a weakened side, when Chelsea faces Liverpool in Sunday’s title clash, after losing Petr Cech and John Terry to injury against Atletico Madrid.

Cech was taken off in the first half, after dislocating his left shoulder and is out of the season, while captain Terry limped off later with an ankle problem.

Despite the fact that victory for the Blues will pull them back into the title race, Mourinho has clearly prioritized the Champions League above the Premier League.

“I can’t decide by myself,” Mourinho said. “I think that’s a decision I have to listen the club. I’m just a piece, I’m just the manager and no more than that.

“I have to listen to the club. I think the fact that the match is on Sunday I think puts the problem not in my hands.

“We represent English football and we are the only English team that is European competition. Spain has four and gave them all the conditions to try to have success.

“I know what I would do, but I’m not the club. I have to speak with the club.

“I would play with the players that are not going to play Wednesday.”
