Klopp: Chelsea are favourites to win the Premier League

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has claimed that Chelsea are currently the team to beat in the race for the Premier League title.

Chelsea are the in-form team in the Premier League currently. The Blues are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions. This form has seen them rise to the top of the league after 11 games.

They have not lost in the league since September 20, which was their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.

Last time out they got the better of Leeds United. Frank Lampard’s side were 1-0 down, but they fought back to convincingly win 3-1 in front of their returning fans.

Liverpool face Wolves at Anfield on Sunday. If they win, the Reds will move two points ahead of Chelsea in the Premier League.

Speaking ahead of that game, as cited by FourFourTwo, Klopp suggested that Chelsea are currently favourites to win the title:

“If I watch games then I see that Tottenham are obviously doing pretty well, that Chelsea for me in the moment look like the favourites.

“They have the bigger squad, great players, they’re playing well. Now they are full on and have unbelievable opportunities to change [the team] between the games and from one game to the other. That’s it.

“Pressure is there but it’s about yourself. The pressure is there to win the game and we want to win against Wolves. We play only Wolves this weekend and nobody else, so all the others can play against each other or not and then they will collect points.

“It’s always like this, it’s much too early to think about who is ahead of who or whatever. It’s just the situation.

“I said it before, this season is not about setting a target and going for it, it’s about getting through it with the best possible football you can play – and that’s what we try to do.

“That differs from weekend to midweek. Sometimes because of some circumstances, but it’s still the target for us all the time. Be fully focused on the next game, the next opponent, especially not that early about other results.”
