Liverpool’s 30-year-long wait for their 19th Premier League title was over on Thursday, without them having to take the pitch as Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1. It may have seemed that Jurgen Klopp’s men would have to wait for another match, but Chelsea made it simpler for them as they beat a 10-man City side. This was also their first win since 1990.

Calling it an ‘incredible’ moment, Klopp paid tribute to club legends Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard.
“I have no words. It is unbelievable, much more than I thought was possible. Becoming champions with this club is absolutely incredible. This is for Kenny, for Stevie – everyone! The Manchester City game was really tense, I didn’t want to be involved. It was intense but it is an incredible from my players. What they have done over the last few years in exceptional and it’s a pure joy for me to coach them,” he said.
“There’s a sense of relief because after the three-month interruption no one knew how the season would come back. This is for all of the fans. I hope they celebrate it, it’s all in our hearts and our heads, we do it all together and it’s a joy to do this for the fans,” he added.
