Jurgen Klopp explains why Chelsea are favourites to beat Tottenham and Liverpool to the title

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Chelsea’s strength in depth make them favourites to win the Premier League title next May.

The Blues currently sit top of the table after 11 matches having seen off Leeds United 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night.

Frank Lampard’s side have been beaten just once all season in the league and are the division’s top scorers with 25 goals to their name.

Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Leicester City are all hot on their heels in what is set to be a hugely exciting race for the title.

However, Klopp believes Chelsea could shine through in the end due to the depth Frank Lampard possesses in his squad.

“If I watch football games at the moment then Chelsea, for me, look like favourites,” said Klopp to Sky Sports.

“They have the biggest squad, great players playing well together after a rusty start – and they are full on.

“They have unbelievable opportunities to change in games and make changes from one game to the other – so that is it.
