Years Later: Liverpool Is The New Champion of England!

Liverpool clinched its first league title since 1990, ending an agonizing title drought without the players even having to take the field after Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Standing by what he had promised, Klopp led Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years, their first Champions League trophy since 2005, and the club's maiden FIFA Club World Cup trophy.

"It was tough", Lampard told BT Sport.

Out injured from January 1 to March 13 when the Premier League was suspended, Pulisic is making up for lost time and the Pennsylvanian Messi is fast becoming one of the first names on Chelsea's teamsheet.

"And it's not just a one-off, last year they came within a point of it and this year they have only lost once".

"We'll have a lot more days to look forward to as long as Jürgen's there".

Liverpool won the title with seven games to spare, which is a Premier League record, and they also became the first team to ever secure the title in June, due to the delay in action caused by the global pandemic.

Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum added: "It's hard to describe but I can say that I'm really happy and really pleased that I can be a part of this team, be a part of this club".

City manager Pep Guardiola paid tribute to Liverpool.

Guardiola sent a "big congratulations" to Jürgen Klopp and his players after a game when City's big flaw this season - defensive shakiness - was exposed once again.

"I've never thought, "Always we can win", but we can say, the last 10 competitions we played as a club we won eight titles". "One result and a good performance against City is a great feeling for us tonight but the reason we are so far behind is the great levels of consistency that those two teams have reached so it won't happen overnight".

That was after the former head of Liverpool supporters' group Spirit of Shankly, Jay McKenna, flagged up Everton's post from a year earlier before the Chelsea-City game.
