Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes that Chelsea are strong contenders for the league title this season.
And it’s not a surprise why he thinks that. Chelsea have bolstered their squad up immensely during the summer transfer window, signing the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Thiago Silva, among several others – all notable and much wanted players.
And with a team like that, Chelsea is definitely in running for the title. And what’s better than having the last year’s title winner fearing Frank Lampard’s side?
“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,” Klopp 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.”
