Liverpool are the Premier League champions for 2019-20. The champion club ended their 30-year wait for top-flight championship success by clinching the club’s maiden Premier League title.
Manchester City failed to beat Chelsea on Thursday night – which came 24 hours after Crystal Palace were thrashed 4-0 at Anfield – which means the dominant Reds are now mathematically guaranteed the trophy. Three decades in the making, the Reds have finally made it past the final hurdle after Man City lost 2-1 to Chelsea.
Since then Jurgen Klopp becomes the first manager to bring the title to Anfield, doing so just over a year after overseeing the Reds’ sixth Champions League win.
The start of the coronavirus pandemic saw the possibility floated of the season being declared ‘null and void’ – an outcome that would have extended the wait into a 31st year.
However, the successful execution of Project Restart has seen off that possibility, allowing Klopp’s team to pick up the points they needed to seal glory.
Time and time again, talented Liverpool squads promised much only to falter at the final hurdle, but Klopp will now go down in Anfield folklore after guided Liverpool to that elusive Premier League crown – that took 30 years in the making.
