CHAMPIONS!!Liverpool Win The Premier League After 30 Years

For a very long time now, since the turn of the second part of the 2019/2020 season, it has been a matter of when, and not if, Liverpool would win the English Premier League. And on Thursday night, after thrashing toothless Crystal Palace at Anfield, Manchester City’s defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, made sure of that.

The last time Liverpool won the League, their current captain, Jordan Henderson was not alive.

Liverpool are deserving champions, not because they have not won the Premier League since 1990, but because they did so in style, breaking all sorts of records on their way to claiming the highest domestic honors in England.

Jurgen Klopp has done a good job at Liverpool.

Last season, they fell short by two meagre point, after giving Manchester City a tight contest from start to finish. And as a result, many taunted them to go one better and win the League this term, and they didn’t disappoint, with only struggling Watford inflicting on them a defeat this term.

Points were also dropped against bitter rivals, Manchester United and Everton. But now, all that matters not, as their hard work has been repaid. And what a payment it has been, especially when you factor in the fact that there are still 7 games left to be played.Following City’s loss at the Bridge, happy Liverpool fans lined up outside Anfield to celebrate what has been an end to a very long wait. They defied the lockdown order and social distancing regulations to share in the joy of their 19th league title, a first since the Premier League began, and their first in 30 years.

Super fan, Lebron James also tweeted his congratulations.

Reports say that more than 2, 000 fans flooded the premises of Anfield, with some coming even earlier to watch the Chelsea game on their smartphones, as they sang songs of victory and lit up the night skies of Liverpool with red flares.

Within the crowd was also a paper Jurgen Klopp and a paper replica trophy.

But it wasn’t just the fans who waited on the Chelsea game, the manager, and the players and the club legends and the owners, and indeed, all Liverpool fans across the world, did.

Many see this triumph as the first of many to come, but time shall tell. For now, Liverpool travel to the Etihad knowing that they would be given a guard of honour, and that the outcome of that game will be inconsequential and that in their next home game, they would be officially handed the trophy.

Klopp teared up as he shot a video to congratulate the club.

For now, the only thing this history-making team will hope to do, is to break the record of most points in a Premier League season (100), set by Manchester City in 2017–18 season, and they only need five wins to do that.Congratulations LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB!!!
