Liverpool goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, has tipped Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season.
According to the Brazilian, Thomas Tuchel’s side is the leading title contender this season.
The Reds’ goalkeeper is wary of Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku but pointed out that Liverpool is stronger too with defender Virgil Van Dijk returning to the club.
He said Chelsea are “‘one of the favourites” to win this season’s Premier League title while speaking ahead of Saturday’s clash between the Reds and Jurgen Klopp side.
Alisson is full of respect for Chelsea and told Sky Sports News: “I believe they are one of the favourites, for winning the title.
“They proved it last season, winning the Champions League.
“We know how strong they are – but we are not too focused on the opponents, we must be focused on our jobs, to give 100 per cent that we have.”
“He’s an amazing player of course, they became stronger with him,” said Alisson said about Romelu Lukaku.
“And they were already strong – they won the Champions League without him.
“We need to approach this game with the maximum energy and mindset that we have to get our target, which is the three points.”
Alison will hopefully be in goal for Jurgen Klopp’s men when Liverpool face Chelsea on Saturday.
Both Chelsea and Liverpool have started the season on a very bright note winning two out two of their fixtures so far.
Chelsea has beaten Crystal Palace and Arsenal to earn complete six points same as Liverpool who has comfortably won their two matches ahead of the Saturday match.
