Tonight we saw Liverpool Crowned Premier League Champions for the first time in 30 years.
Following Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat against Chelsea, Liverpool has now claimed it’s first league title in the premier league era. No one can deny that Liverpool deserved to crowned Premier League champions, since the start of the season, Liverpool have shown to be a stand out candidate go all the way.
Liverpool were brushing teams aside with ease, the form they have shown throughout the season, its was evident that only one team was gonna runaway with the title. By Christmas time the gap with between Liverpool and Manchester City was too big for City to mount a challenge, the Red kept picking up more points and they were just too far to catch. They were simply outplaying each team they came up against with they eye-catching style of football.
Before the season got suspended due to coronavirus crisis, Liverpool recorded 27 wins from 29 league games with 25pts clear from Manchester City.

Manchester City put up a great battle throughout the season, they tried to cut the points difference on numerous occasions. However, Liverpool were just steamrolling teams week in and week out.
Jurgen Klopp becomes the first Liverpool manager to win the league since Kenny Dalglish in 1990, during the thirty year title drought Liverpool have tried with several different managers. The likes of Graeme Souness, Roy Evans, Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson, Kenny Dalglish (2nd time as manager) and Brendan Rodgers, all have failed where Jurgen Klopp succeeded.
Will now see Liverpool dominate for years come after witnessing the way the team went about their business?
Liverpool are only going to improve for next season under Jurgen Klopp and will come back stronger. Liverpool came close to winning the title last season, only to narrowly miss out by a point.
speaking to Sky Sports, Jurgen Klopp said:
“There’s a sense of relief because after the three-month interruption no one knew how the season would come back. This is for all of the fans. I hope they celebrate it, it’s all in our hearts and our heads, we do it all together and it’s a joy to do this for the fans.
“I have no words. It is unbelievable, much more than I thought was possible. Becoming champions with this club is absolutely incredible. This is for Kenny, for Stevie – everyone! The Manchester City game was really tense, I didn’t want to be involved. It was intense but it is incredible from my players. What they have done over the last few years in exceptional and it’s a pure joy for me to coach them.
“This is a big moment, I have no real words. I am completely overwhelmed. I never thought I would feel like this…”
Jurgen Klopp was full of emotion after the game, celebrating what his side just achieved.
🗣 “We made the best of our situation”
