After a 30-year wait, augmented by a 3-month coronavirus induced hiatus, Liverpool FC have won the English Premier League.
Victory came late last night on Thursday 25 June as Chelsea beat Liverpool’s closest rivals, Manchester City 2- 1 at Stamford Bridge. With seven games remaining in the season, Liverpool also became the earliest winners of the league ever and are one Premier League win away from equaling Manchester United’s 20 titles.
This is Liverpool's first title win in the era of the Premier League.
Liverpool erupted in celebration after the win, with fans in the streets and fans setting off fireworks at the club’s ground, Anfield.
Mo Salah, Liverpool striker and our Man of the Year 2019 posted on Instagram to say “Yes, it feels THAT good.” He went on to thank the club’s supporters and them that now, they could believe.

Over four years, Klopp took them to victory in the Champion’s League, the Super Cup, the club world cup and now the Premier League, winning 156 of his 258 games in charge.
