Jurgen Klopp names Chelsea favourites in Premier League title race
According to the Express, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has named Chelsea the favourites to win this season’s Premier League title.
The Blues are well in the hunt after a sustained run of positive results in recent weeks. A new-found defensive solidity combined with attacking nous has seen the club soar up the standings.
With the side regularly stacking up wins, the fact that we feature in conversations for the title is no surprise.
Having won the title at a canter last season, defending champions Liverpool are in for a proper fight this time around.
It is something Reds boss Jurgen Klopp seems acutely aware of. The German believes the Blues’ squad depth combined with the team gelling well will bode well for their hopes of winning the big prize. (h/t Express)
“If I watch football games at the moment then Chelsea, for me, look like favourites.”
Klopp also appeared to hint at the options available to Frank Lampard. Given our strength in depth, the Chelsea boss has the luxury to try different options where needed. (h/t Express)
“They have unbelievable opportunities to change in games and make changes from one game to the other – so that is it.”
To his credit, Klopp did not discount the chances of his side winning the title or rule themselves out despite their difficulties. (h/t Express)
