Chelsea defeated Manchester City last night to ensure that Liverpool will lift the Premier League trophy.
The Reds had to wait for 30 years to win their 19th league title and the celebrations are not going to stop any time soon despite the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic.
The Merseysiders lost the title to the Sky Blues by just a single point last term but this time around, they have blown away opponents to win the title with 7 games still remaining, a new record.
We need 15 points out of the remaining 21 to break Man City’s record of 100 points – set in the 2017-18 campaign.
The football world has reacted by praising Klopp and Liverpool as they finally become Premier League champions. A few reactions are provided below:
