Liverpool win first Premier league title in their history as they beat Pep’s City to lift the famous old trophy, after Chelsea beat City by two goals to one on Thursday the 25th of June, 2020.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool became only the seventh club to win the English top flight since the start of the Premier League era.
Liverpool became Premier League champions for the first time, ending a three-decade wait to win the English top flight again.
The Reds’ 19th league title was secured on Thursday when Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge meant Pep Guardiola’s side could not mathematically catch Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The destination of the 2019-20 Premier League title has been a foregone conclusion for quite some time, though, with Liverpool having taken a notable 86 points from their first 31 games.
Klopp’s side pushed City all the way last season but, despite claiming 97 points during that occasion, they finished behind a City side that won back-to-back titles.
This time around it’s been the club from Merseyside who have set an unreachable pace in at the top of the table. They had enjoyed an early start to life in the league, winning all eighteen of their opening games.
Liverpool dropped just two points from their opening 27 games and didn’t taste defeat within the Premier League until the last day of February when beaten 3-0 by Watford at Vicarage Road.
At that time their lead over City was already 22 points and only the coronavirus-enforced break has delayed their confirmation as champions for the first time since 1989-90.
That title triumph was Liverpool’s 18th league championship, a record haul that has since been eclipsed by Manchester United following their glorious run under Alex Ferguson.
However, Klopp’s arrival from Borussia Dortmund replacing Brendan Rodgers in 2015 turned Liverpool into a force once again – firstly on the continent, and now domestically.
Liverpool beat Tottenham in the Champions League final 12 months ago, a year after being beaten at a similar stage by Real Madrid in Kiev, to win Europe’s premier club competition for a sixth time.
But it absolutely was the first domestic prize that their fans had yearned for this long, and Klopp’s men of 2019-20 have now ended that long wait, and with seven games to spare.
As Liverpool win first Premier league title after a remarkably long 30-year period, we can now look back and truly recognise how well they’ve been playing, and truly give Klopp a pat on the back.
