Jose Mourinho believes the biggest difference between Liverpool and Manchester City and the rest of the top Premier League sides is club structure.

The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal appear miles off the pace of the top two, with Liverpool currently leading the table with a perfect record from four games.

Mourinho, who won the league three times at Chelsea, identified why United and others were so far behind Liverpool and City.

‘I think it’s down to the structure of the clubs (top two),’ Mourinho told The Telegraph.

‘When you look at City for example, the owner Ferran Soriano, [director of football] Txiki Begiristain, Pep Guardiola, Pep’s staff and then the players.

‘This looks like harmony, empathy, chemistry, quality, sharing the same project, sharing the same ideas.

‘Liverpool? I also think that Jurgen (Klopp) is in a good position. He is very stable. I think he has control of his areas.

‘He is supported by people who think the same way, the structure of the club.

‘Okay, Pep: fantastic coach. Jurgen: fantastic coach.

‘I think if tomorrow one of them leaves and another top coach comes – of course he has to be top like they are – the team will still be there (at that level). I think performance is globality. I think basically it is that.’
