Liverpool’s 30 years of waiting for their 19th top-flight title have finally ended after Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Thursday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, who played a goalless draw in the Merseyside derby with Everton, but later went on to thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 on Wednesday, have sealed their first Premier League crown with seven games left after City dropped points in a dramatic encounter at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool have had a great season that has seen them lose just one match in the league so far, that was a shock 3-0 loss at struggling Watford in February which reduced the lead to 22-point over Pep Guardiola’s side in the second position.
Their march towards the league title was temporarily halted by the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic back in March, with the Reds in need of just two wins to be crowned the champions.
Jurgen Klopp’s men still have plenty to play for between now and the end of the season as they go in search of more records to break, including the most wins and points in a Premier League season, as well as the record number of points in an English league campaign.
