Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has named Chelsea as the favourites to win the Premier League title this season.
According to Klopp, Chelsea are favourites to win the Premier League title because the Blues have the biggest squad.
“If I watch football games at the moment then Chelsea, for me, look like favourites,” Klopp told 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.”
Meanwhile, Manchester United legend Patrice Evra insists Chelsea are on the right direction.
“They’re moving in the right direction, definitely,” Evra told Sky Sports.
“Like I say, the fans have to understand that you need time to settle, and I am really surprised to already see Chelsea at that level and top of the league.
“I know we approaching Christmas, but it is still early – they have only played 11 games.
“But like you say, they have so many new players, so many players from different countries and they have to settle.
“They are moving in the right direction and he [Lampard] is doing a great job.
“I’ll be honest, at the beginning of the season, I, as always when you bring in a lot of new players, was worried.
“But to be top of the league after 11 games… Frank is doing a great job right now.”
