  • There were cries of joy as Liverpool players celebrated the team’s triumph from a hotel
  • Jurgen Klopp was seen getting emotional as he sent a message to fans

Liverpool’s Premier League title-winning moment was devoid of all the drama. While the Merseyside club would have loved to be on the turf when the historic title was sealed, they won it with their players and coaching staff camped at a team hotel in Merseyside.

Liverpool players were counting down the final moments of the Premier League match between Manchester City and Chelsea. Pep Guardiola’s men had an opportunity to delay the inevitable but they lost 1-2 to the Blues, thereby confirming Liverpool’s crowning moment.

There were hugs and wild celebrations at the rooftop garden of the team hotel as Liverpool ended a 30-year wait for the English league title. Liverpool stars jumped in joy and hugged their mates as they soaked in the glory.

On the streets of Liverpool, there was a massive celebration. Fans had gathered outside the Anfield and painted the city red as they rejoiced in the success while not being able to see their stars get the job done on the field.

Manager Jurgen Klopp, who is already being hailed as an ‘absolute’ legend at Liverpool, was seen teary-eyed as he dedicated the Premier League triumph to current and former players of the side.

Liverpool did in style. They won with 7 matches remaining, thereby breaking the joint record for the fastest win held by Manchester United and City. Liverpool could end up with the record for the most points won in a Premier League campaign as they already have 86, 23 more than 2nd-placed City, with 7 more matches to go in the season.

Liverpool were relieved when the Premier League restarted following the enforced break due to the Covid-19 pandemic that threatened their chances of ending their title drought. They had done enough before the break that it was just a matter of when.

When the league resumed, Liverpool were held by Merseyside rivals Everton but they roared back to form thrashing Crystal Palace 4-0 over the weekend to put them closer towards the title.

On Thursday, Chelsea did their bit by beating Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge as Liverpool were crowned champions. They will likely be given a guard of honour when they walk out against City on July 2 at the Etihad Stadium.
