For the first time since the Football League First Division officially became the English Premier League around 30 years ago, Liverpool have been crowned as champions of England.

Liverpool were 23 points ahead of second placed Manchester City and needed just one more win to secure the title. But overnight City were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea which handed Liverpool the title with seven games left to spare, becoming the fastest team to win the title in the process.

The win gives Liverpool their first title since 1990 and is their 19th title in the English top flight overall.

Liverpool were coming off a fantastic 2018/2019 Champions League victory and can now add an illustrious Premier League title to the collection which has capped off a brilliant period under the reign of coach Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp still couldn’t put to words just how much it meant to himself and the club as a whole.

“I have no words. It’s unbelievable.” Klopp said.

“It’s much more than I ever thought would be possible. It’s easy for me to motivate the team because of our great history.

“It’s an incredible achievement from my players, what they’ve done over the last two or three years is exceptional. It’s a joy for me to coach them.

“It’s quite an achievement. Because of the three months interruption… no one knew how we were going to come back. Tonight I can only tell you it’s for us.”
