Liverpool are Premier League Champions for the first time, and English Champions for the first time in 30 years.
Klopp took over in 2015, with Liverpool 8th in the league. He nearly tasted glory in the Europa League, League Cup, and Champions League in his first years, before finally winning the Champions League last season. Liverpool finished runner-up last year, just one point behind Manchester City. Their 97 points tally would have been good enough to win the League in all but two seasons.
But this year there was no denying the reds, who lifted the Super Cup and World Cup earlier in the season. There were concerns that the season may not return, however once it was confirmed it was, it was a matter of when not if.
Liverpool beat Crystal Palace in an immaculate display on Wednesday to put them one result away. Chelsea’s 2 – 1 win at home to Manchester City confirmed Liverpool as champions.
This is the earliest title win for any team in terms of games remaining, with 7 left to play. It is simultaneously the latest title win in terms of time, the first time a title has been sealed in June.
Mohamed Salah is Liverpool’s top scorer this season with 17 goal, Mane is next with 17.
Congratulations to Liverpool.
As for all the other fans.
