Liverpool's Brazilian midfielder Fabinho has explained why Manchester City and Chelsea stand out as the favourites to win the 2021/2022 English Premier League title.
According to the 27-year-old former AS Monaco midfielder, Man City and Chelsea have added more quality players this season despite winning the English title and European trophy last season respectively.
City signed Jack Grealish while Chelsea added Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez.
"I think Manchester City are the favourites, as they’re the defending champions and still keep strengthening themselves, which is what they do every season," he told ESPN.
"They, even being champions, always want to reinforce, so they are favourites for the season.
"Chelsea, current Champions League champions, keep buying, too. I think these two teams come really strong, too, and are the favourites," Fabinho concluded.
Meanwhile, Fabinho and the Reds are now looking ahead to Norwich in the EFL Cup midweek.
