Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Chelsea are the current favorites to win the Premier League this season.

The Blues are first in the English top-flight after they beat Leeds 3-1 on Saturday and have a one-point lead over reigning champions Liverpool and Tottenham, who play on Sunday.

Klopp believes the London side are the biggest threat to his side’s title defense but was quick to stress the Reds remain focused on themselves.

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

“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 [on Sunday]. 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.”
