Yup but not every manager can do that. Its very likely Klopp would win with the best team but his record when he is the favorite is poor. He had a better team in the Uefa Cup and the season with no CB's was favorite. As far as I can measure those are the only 2 times I've seen him as favorite for a trophy. Not a knock on the man but in the same way people say we need to see Pep win without the best team, we also need to see how Jurgen actually does as the favorites.It’s not about coping with being a favourite it’s simply about having better players technically mentally and tactically. This Liverpool have no problems being favourite because they simply have better players than they did for example when they faced Sevilla, that’s all, the failing to put up a challenge also is down to losing all 3 starting cbs for the majority of the season which has this season shows its a total outlier.
Generally the better your players this more you win.
Only 3 men have retained the PL for example when in charge of the best team. Ask Wenger how hard it is.
