Manchester City’s failure to pick all 3 points earlier against Chelsea means Liverpool are now league champions for the first time in 30 years. The Reds have been in scintillating form this season only dropping points against Manchester United, Watford and Everton in their 31 games so far.
The emergency of the coronavirus brought the possibility of the season being cancelled but thankfully that didn’t happen and Liverpool are now rightfully champions.It means Liverpool have secured the club’s 19th league title, ending a 30-year wait following their previous success in 1990.
In an unprecedented campaign, the club have claimed the championship earlier than any other side in Premier League history, doing so with seven games still to be contested.
The Reds equalled a top-flight record of 18 successive victories – and also set a new landmark for number of consecutive league home triumphs, with the win against Palace their 23rd in a row.
