Liverpool has finally ended their 3 decades wait for a top-flight title after Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Thursday night.
Liverpool has enjoyed a stunning season that has seen them beaten just once in the league so far they top the table with 23-point over Pep Guardiola’s side in second.
Their unstoppable march towards the league title was temporarily halted by the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic back in March, with the Reds just two wins from glory.
Although they were delayed when they were held goalless draw by Everton following the resumption of the league this month.
Klopp’s side now stands just one behind Manchester United’s record-breaking haul of 20 top-flight titles.
Speaking to sky sports, Jurgen Klopp 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. 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 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. This is a big moment, I have no real words. I am completely overwhelmed. I never thought I would feel like this.”
Liverpool still has plenty to play for between now and the end of the campaign as they are set to break records including the most ever wins and points in a Premier League season.
Filled with joy, the Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson told sky sports during a live video; “Amazing. I didn’t want to talk about it until this moment so it’s amazing to finally get over the line. I’m so happy for all the boys, the fans, the whole club, the city. I’m a little bit overwhelmed right now, it’s an amazing feeling and I’m just so proud of what we’ve achieved. I said after the Champions League final that it wouldn’t be possible to do it without the manager and it’s the same with this title. Everything from when he came in, and that’s no disrespect to the managers before him or who I’ve worked with before because we have come close but I felt from day one, he came in the door and he just changed everything.”
With 7 more games remaining, Liverpool has taken over Manchester United (5) on games remaining before winning the league.
