- Frank Lampard says Jurgen Klopp's opinion about Chelsea being title favourites is ridiculous
- The Blues boss claimed that the Liverpool manager had once questioned his team's ability to defend
- Chelsea suffered their second loss in the Premier League to Everton at Goodison Park last weekend
Frank Lampard has slammed Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp for saying Chelsea are one of the favourites to win the Premier League title this season.
The Reds are also in strong contention to retain the trophy despite the injury setbacks that have hit the team this season.
Despite the Blues' defeat to Everton at Stamford Bridge, Klopp does not give his team a chance to win the coveted trophy.
However, Lampard has appeared to question why Klopp may have questioned the attacking ability of his players while pointing out the lack of experience at Stamford Bridge.
After Klopp had said:
"If I watch football games at the moment then Chelsea, for me, look like favourites.
"They have the biggest squad, great players playing well together after a rusty start - and they are full on.”
Lampard returned after the Everton loss:
“If it makes some people who are talking about us winning the league, saying we’ve got the best squad in the league, it’s ridiculous stuff.
“Midfield players who have won league titles all over the place, experienced people who have won it and Champions Leagues.
“We have some, we have some, but we also have young players and as a squad we aren’t there.
“If you ask me in a couple of years and I’m still here and we’ve won a couple of leagues I’d say yes, but at the moment people want to look at our squad and talk about it."
