Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has tipped Liverpool to win the Premier League title, ahead of reigning champions Manchester City.
The Reds current sit atop the table, and are in terrific form having won all but one of their games so far – a draw at Old Trafford.
The Argentine is due to take his Spurs side to Anfield this weekend, with an eye on taking some points away from the Champions of Europe.
But he was asked by Football.London who he thinks is favourite for the title of the Champions of England, and the Spurs boss had no doubt in his mind on who is top at the moment.
“Liverpool is the favourites, of course it’s so early in the season but Liverpool and Manchester City are the clear favourites to win the title this season,” he said.
As Poch said – it’s still very early in the season, and it’d be naive to assume the Reds will go on to win the title based on the first nine games.
That being said if we’re still on a comfortable lead this time after another seven or eight games, then I think Liverpool fans will begin to get excited.
