"If I watch football games at the moment then Chelsea, for me, look like favourites," Klopp told reporters ahead of Liverpool's home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"They have unbelievable opportunities to change in games and make changes from one game to the other - so that is it."

Lampard built his squad after spending nearly $295.64 million in the summer transfer window. Despite a rough start, Chelsea have bounced back in form with 16 unbeaten matches in all competitions. Their recent win against Leeds put them on the top of Premier League table.
