Klopp says City are favourites

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has declared that Manchester City are favourites for the Premier League title.

City finished third last season, 15 points behind champions Chelsea in Pep Guardiola’s first season in England, but Klopp fancies them to improve on that showing this time out.

“The favourites must be Manchester City actually. They played some incredible football last year and had just a couple of problems,” the German told DAZN.

A busy summer in the transfer market for the Citizens has seen Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mnedy, Bernardo Silva, Danilo and Ederson all head to the Etihad, but Klopp is big on Gabriel Jesus, who is preparing for his first full season at the club.

“They are definitely the favourites. Manchester City is in attack mode, that is obvious.

“They already had an incredible team last season and then Jesus joined them and I thought, ‘Oh my goodness’.

“I mean he is very young and really strong. Incredible player – and now they got some defenders as well. They will be interesting to watch.”
