Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed his favourites for the Champions League title this season and it’s not the team he manages.

In a chat with popular German newspaper Kicker, Jurgen Klopp revealed that Manchester City are the front-runners for the Champions League final.

According to the German tactician, Manchester City have a very good squad and they are favourites to win the competition this season.

Manchester City have not won the Champions League in their history and they have reached the semifinals just once.

The Citizens reached the last four on one occasion and that was during the 2015/16 season.

Liverpool are the reigning European champions after they defeated Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur to win the Champions League title.

The Reds beat the North London giants 2-0 in their final clash at the start of June with goals from Mohamed Salah (penalty) and second half substitute Divock Origi.

Liverpool and Manchester City are the top two teams in the Premier League and both teams fought for the league title last season.

In the end, Manchester City won the league title last season after they finished one point ahead of Liverpool buoyed by the run of 14 straight wins at the end of the season.
