Klopp: City are favourites

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes Manchester City will be the team to beat in this season's Premier League.

The Reds manager thinks Pep Guardiola has made several excellent signings this summer and sees them as the title favourites.

Guardiola has signed the likes of Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker, Danilo and Benjamin Mendy this summer while allowing Gael Clichy, Jesus Navas, Bacary Sagna, Pablo Zabaleta, Kelechi Iheanacho and Aleksandar Kolarov to leave the club.

"The favourites must be Manchester City actually," Klopp said. "They played some incredible football last year and had just a couple of problems.

"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."

Liverpool are 40/1 to win the Premier League title this season while Manchester City can be backed at 2/5.
