Brighton boss Chris Hughton believes that Liverpool are top contenders for the Premier League title. After a 3-2 win against Manchester United, Brighton and Hove Albion travel to Anfield to play Liverpool today.
Many consider Liverpool to end their almost three decade wait to lift the Premier League and the Brighton boss is one of them. When asked if Liverpool can win the Premier League, the Irishman said, “Yes. Simply because they are a team – and because they didn’t win it you sometimes forget – but they got to the final of the Champions League last year. And if some circumstances had been different they might have won it.
So you are talking about a team of that level, and I think they have improved the squad, so I think you have to [regard Liverpool as title contenders]. Man City I think would naturally be the favourite because of what they have done last season and how convincing they were last season. But yes, I would consider these to be very much title contenders as well.”
