Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson becker believes that Chelsea is the leading title contender for the Premier League. Liverpool and Chelsea are two of the teams that won both their opening games of the season. They face each other this weekend at Anfield in an intriguing early-season clash between title contenders.
“I believe they are one of the favorites, for winning the title.” Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker said before facing Chelsea. “They proved it last season, winning the Champions League. We know how strong they are – but we are not too focused on the opponents, we must be focused on our jobs, to give 100 percent that we have.”
Romelu Lukaku has re-signed from the club after winning the Serie A with Inter Milan last season. He scored on his second debut for the club against Arsenal last weekend. Alisson was full of praise for the Belgian striker.
“He’s an amazing player, of course, they became stronger with him,” said Alisson. “And they were already strong – they won the Champions League without him. He’s an amazing player, I don’t need to tell you about his qualities. We need to approach this game with the maximum energy and mindset that we have to get our target, which is the three points.”
“We already have a top team and having Virgil is really important for us,” Alisson said about Virgil van Dijk who missed the majority of last season with a knee injury. “He is someone who gives you confidence on the pitch with his presence and his qualities. He can give so much for you defensively – and attacking-wise, setting up the moves.”
