BREAKING Liverpool win Premier League to end 30 year top-flight title drought

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have secured the club’s 19th league title – and a first since 1990 – as the Reds have finally confirmed what long looked inevitable during a dominant season.

Liverpool have secured the club’s first top-flight English league title since 1990, marking a 19th league success in their history and a first in the Premier League era.

The Reds were confirmed as Premier League champions after Chelsea ended Man City’s title hopes by defeating them 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been the dominant force throughout the 2019/20 campaign, winning 27 of their 29 league games to pull 25 points clear at the top of the table prior to the season being suspended due to the coronavirus crisis.

A 0-0 draw at Everton on Sunday meant they could not win the league against Palace on Wednesday night, but they hammered the Eagles 4-0 to set up the triumph.

The success pulls the Reds to within one title of Manchester United’s record haul of 20, and marks the end of a 30-year quest to get back to a status they regularly enjoyed in the 1970s and 80s.

Klopp’s side came within a whisker of winning the title last season, picking up 97 points from their 38 games only to be pipped to the trophy by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who ended on 98.
