Tonight it became official, Liverpool are Premier League champions. It was always going to happen! From about Christmas time in the Premier League it looked like the only outcome was that Jürgen Klopp‘s free-playing side would steam towards the title.
And now, it’s exactly what’s happened – sort of. When football was put on held for three months, the Reds were top of the table and 25 points clear of last year’s winners, Manchester City.
Last week, if Arsenal had beat City, Liverpool could have mathematically become champions in the Merseyside Derby. It wasn’t to be, but tonight the dream became a reality after Pep’s side failed to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Going into this game, Liverpool needed just two points to clinch the title after beating Palace 4-0 on Wednesday night, so anything less than a win for City tonight would see them hand over the trophy. And that’s exactly what happened.
Despite Liverpool’s phenomenal history of success it is their first Premier League trophy and their first league title since 1990.
Having lost just one game all season, they can still go on to beat the record of the highest points total by any team in a single EPL season – 100 points – set by City in 2018.
Liverpool next play in the Premier League on Thursday 02 July, away to Manchester City, so, expect drama.
