Liverpool are the favourites to win the Premier League this season, claims Brighton boss Chris Hughton.
The Reds are looking to return to winning ways this weekend with a win at the Amex Stadium after their first defeat of the season at the hands of Manchester City a week ago.
Pep Guardiola’s side has been emboldened by their victory over Liverpool and with just four points between the two outfits, the run-in to the end of the season will be thrilling to watch.
“At this moment, I think [Liverpool] are favourites simply because of the points difference, and I think they’ve been outstanding,” said Hughton.
“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.”
