Former Liverpool striker, Peter Crouch, has named Manchester City as the favourite team to win the Premier League title following the Reds’ 1-0 home defeat to Brighton on Wednesday night.

Liverpool slipped to a second straight home defeat at Anfield against Brighton following Steven Alzate’s fortuitous second-half goal.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are now in the 4th position on the Premier League table with 40 points from 22 games.

“There’s an over-reliance on Salah, Firmino’s got to step up,” Crouch told BT Sport.

“It felt like he’s coming back into it. But Salah is the one scoring the goals, he’s still got 20-goals, and we’re talking about him not being on top form.

“He’s a top-class player but with Mane missing, Jota as well. It was a shame when Jota got injured because he was really pushing them to start.

“But when Salah’s not on it, or he misses chances, I just don’t think there’s enough when Mane’s out, and Jota’s out in the team to score goals.”

He added, “It’s a crazy season, I know people will say it’s a cliche, but it’s been nuts.

“Liverpool will get players back so they will go on a run, we can’t discount Manchester United and Leicester have been fantastic, another win for them tonight, they’ve got so many good players. But City are strong favourites.”
