Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher thinks the scheduling of the Champions League final benefits Tottenham “more than” Liverpool.
Carragher’s former club Liverpool reached the final with an unbelievable comeback victory over Barcelona in the semis and they will play Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the Madrid finale on June 1.
The ex-England international has already admitted that he is “worried” that Spurs are “going to do a Liverpool 2005″ and in the same interview he reckons Tottenham will benefit the most from the scheduling of the final.
“It’s a weird one really. You normally go away and that’s what Liverpool have done – going to Marbella,” Carragher told The Anfield Wrap.
“No-one’s been able to give me a reason why the Champions League is three weeks after the league campaign.
“It’s normally two weeks, where you have the FA Cup then the week after is the Champions League.
“That’s p***ed me off a little bit that to be honest. I think it probably helps Spurs more than us, I would say.
“I think they’ve got bigger injury problems than us, certainly with Harry Kane, Harry Winks, other little knocks they had towards the end of the season.
“It gives you an extra week to be fit. I think we’re in much better form than Tottenham in 2019 and a longer break will not help that, really, in some ways.
“You do worry because you lose a bit of that rhythm that Liverpool have had the way they’ve been playing.
“I don’t think Tottenham are in great form. I know they got through and it’s unbelievable what they’ve done, I love Pochettino…
“But they’re not in great form so a longer break will help them forget the bad form and focus on this one game.”
