Chelsea continued their good pace after beating Leeds United. Liverpool manager Juvergen Klopp believes Chelsea deserve to be league champions this season.
The Blues Sunday (6/12/2020) 3-1 win over the promoted team at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea came out on top with a goal from Patrick Bamford, with three goals from Olivier Giroud, Kurt Souma and Christian Pulisic.
As a result, Chelsea have won five of their last nine matches. The West London team has been consistent after winning only once in their first five matches.
Three extra points from Leeds lifted Neela to the top of the standings with 22 points. Chelsea are one point ahead of champions Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur tonight.
It was initially predicted that Liverpool would only face Manchester City for the Premier League title this season. However, Klopp believes Chelsea should also be taken into account.
“If I watch football matches now, Chelsea, it’s a favorite of mine,” Klopp said Sky Sports. “They have the biggest squad, the best players who perform well after a suffocating start.”
“They have incredible opportunities to change a lot of games and make a lot of changes from game to game. So yes, there you have it.”
“I don’t think we’ve following anyone right now or following anyone after us. We’re under pressure, but it’s about how much you think about that pressure,” Klopp added.
