Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists Jurgen Klopp is wrong to name Chelsea as favourites to win the Premier League title.
Klopp had earlier claimed Chelsea were favourites to win the Premier League title this season because the Blues have the “biggest squad and great players”.
Chelsea have only lost once this season, which was a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in September, but Lampard insists Liverpool and Manchester City remain favourites to win the Premier League title.
“I’m not sure anyone actually went for it,” the Blues boss told Sky Sports . “Liverpool and Manchester City seem to be pretty much everyone’s favourites and rightly so with the form they have had over the past three or four years and how they have built up their squads.
“Even with injuries, you look at the squad Liverpool put out last night with players missing and it’s a very good side. Tottenham and Manchester United are in the frame too.
“It’s his opinion and he is entitled to it but I think it’s clear where we are at – we are in good form but we have players who have just come into this league or younger players.
“Some teams like Liverpool and City have had success with very established Premier League players who have been performing to a high standard for several years.
“We are trying to get there and reach that and that is going to take lots of consistency over the coming months.”
