Liverpool FC bags Premier League Title After 30 years


Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat by Chelsea secured the premiership title for Liverpool, with an impressive run this season amidst great clubs and a drought of 30 years.

Chelsea’s win gave the Reds a 23-point lead over Manchester City with seven games left.

According to Reuters and other reports, “Liverpool were last champions of England when they won the old First Division title in 1989/1990.
After this was a decline in fortunes which saw Manchester United and Arsenal, then Chelsea and Manchester City seize power”

Manager Juergen Klopp has delivered the club’s 19th top-flight title, in his press statement, “I have no words. It’s unbelievable and much more than I ever thought would be possible,”

“It’s easy to motivate this team because of our great history. It’s pure joy for me to coach them.”
In the last 12 months Liverpool have won the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and World Club Cup.

But regaining their status as top dogs in England, something that was almost a given in the 1970s and 1980s, was the priority.

In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic forcing a three-month suspension of the season and delaying Liverpool’s coronation, they have won the title with a record seven games to spare.
They eclipsed the mark jointly held by Manchester United (2000/2001) and Manchester City (2017/2018), who sealed their respective titles with five games left.
