LIVERPOOL are finally Premier League champions, ending a 30-year wait to reclaim their place at the top of English football.
The Reds got it faster after Manchester City lost 2-1 to Chelsea Thursday night.
After hammering Crystal Palace 4-0 on Wednesday, Jurgen Klopp just needed Pep Guardiola’s team to drop points at Stamford Bridge.
Former Liverpool target Christian Pulisic – who played under Klopp at Dortmund – got Chelsea off to a flier with a superb breakaway goal according to The Sun report.
Kevin De Bruyne’s stunning free-kick pegged the Blues back but Willian fired home a penalty to earn a huge three points and send Liverpool fans wild.
And now, with seven games remaining, the Kop faithful can finally breathe easy after months of stress with the season on the brink of being cancelled during the enforced Covid-19 break.
The Reds last won the league in the 1989-90 season under Kenny Dalglish, with John Barnes at the peak of his powers with a superb 22 goals that year.
But since then it’s been a bleak three decades for Liverpool fans, domestically speaking.
In that time, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City have won multiple league titles – with Blackburn and Leicester even securing Premier League glory.
The Merseyside giants have never finished in the bottom half of the Premier League.
