Jurgen Klopp believes Chelsea are favorites to win the Premier League.
Last season, Liverpool boss Reds led the Reds to their first title in 30 years. Despite having a list of injuries, this time they are in the first pack of pacemakers.
Liverpool beat Frank Lampard 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in September.
Klopp estimates that the current form makes the Blues champions at the polar position.
Klopp said: “If I watch football games now, Chelsea look like a favorite to me.
“They have the biggest squad, the best players play well after a rusty start – they are full.
“They have incredible opportunities to change games and make changes from one game to another – so be it.
“I do not think we are following anyone right now – or someone is following us.
“We have pressure, but no matter how much you think about that pressure, be honest.” Liverpool face Wolves after easing Corona virus restrictions on Mercedes, welcoming 2,000 fans back to Anfield.
Klopp does not believe that the return of supporters to some clubs will bring them any benefits.
He will continue to lobby the Premier League to allow managers to reuse five substitutes this season.
Klopp claims that other countries do not understand why he is the only one to return to the three substitutes as players struggle to cope with the requested schedule created by the corona virus crisis.
Liverpool want to repeat last season’s success – you do not want to miss a thing, do you?

This is a very interesting start to the season for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
As the seven-goal thriller against Leeds unfolded, they shook the title defense before Aston Villa scored seven runs on the hammer.
Virgil van Dijk’s season injury ended in a 2-2 draw at Everton, and the title favorites looked very safe behind – especially Allison’s injury concerns.
But he’s not slowing down on what’s going to be a busy campaign – Klopp ensures that his men continue at full speed as he bids for more headlines.

Liverpool’s casualty list highlights the problems he faces.
But Cope Boss fears that the players will not suffer mentally.
He watches his team closely to see how they deal with the remaining restrictions on the fight against the epidemic.
Klopp said: “It is 100 percent clear that the whole situation is a challenge. Boys are always under pressure.
“I know they are getting a good salary, but they are still human and should go home and stay there until they go for the next training.
“Boys are tested twice a week for Kovid-19, but their children still go to school, which makes them more difficult. It always exacerbates things – that’s all about mental health.
“It simply came to our notice then. My door is as open as possible and we have a lot of talk.
“You look into their eyes and expect them to tell you when something is not going the right way – but there is no guarantee.
“That’s why I need five subs. It is clear that we need to do that. This is not about helping my team. This is for all teams.
“If you ask people from other leagues – not just Germany – they can’t understand why we didn’t do it.
“It’s not a solution, but it’s part of a solution. I think we should go for it if we can help any players a little bit.”
