Albion boss Chris Hughton says Liverpool are favourites to take the Premier League title from Manchester City.

But he is not ruling out the reigning champions, who will be hoping for a favour from the Seagulls against Jurgen Klopp's league leaders at the Amex on Saturday.

Liverpool can go seven points clear with a victory, as Manchester City do not host Wolves until Monday.

Hughton said: "At this moment, I think they are favourites simply because of the points difference, and I think they've been outstanding.

"But you certainly can't write off a Manchester City team that have been the best team over the last few seasons and arguably played the best football.

"I think Liverpool are favourites but I couldn't tell you who will win it. And certainly I wouldn't put money on it."
