Hughton Has Reds As Title Favourites

Brighton boss Chris Hughton has said Liverpool are the favourites to lift the Premier League title although he “wouldn’t put money on it”. Jurgen Klopp’s table-topping side travel to the Amex Stadium on Saturday holding a four-point cushion over champions Manchester City.

However, the Reds were beaten 2-1 by second-placed City in their previous league fixture before crashing out of the FA Cup at Wolves on Monday.

Asked if the Merseyside club can end their 19-year wait for a top-flight title, Hughton replied: “I don’t know. “At this moment, I think they are favourites simply because of the points difference, and I think they’ve been outstanding. “But you certainly can’t write off a Manchester City team that have been the best team over the last few seasons, and arguably played the best football. “I think Liverpool are favourites, but I couldn’t tell you who will win it. And, certainly, I wouldn’t put money on it.”
