Liverpool have ended their long wait to be crowned Premier League champions after Manchester City’s 2-1 loss at Chelsea left them with an unassailable lead.
The Reds’ first league title since 1990 was confirmed on Thursday, after Pep Guardiola’s side failed to win at Stamford Bridge.
Christian Pulisic’s goal had given Chelsea to lead before a wonderful Kevin De Bruyne sparked hopes of a comeback, but Fernandinho’s late red card led to a coolly converted penalty to win the game – and gift Liverpool league glory.
Liverpool had moved to the brink of the title with a 4-0 battering of Crystal Palace at Anfield on Wednesday, and their lead of 23 points at the top of the table is the largest held by a champion in English top-flight history.
Klopp’s side will now look to write even more history. They need 15 points from their last seven matches to set a new record points total for a top-flight campaign, and can also become the first team to win every single home game in a single season.
