Liverpool have won the Premier League after Manchester City faltered against Chelsea. The Reds have conquered the league, wrapping up the title with seven matches still to play. This marks their 19th league championship and their first-ever Premier League trophy.
Liverpool Win Premier League With Six Games to Spare
Jurgen Klopp Lifts Yet Another Trophy With Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp is turning Liverpool into serial winners once again. He had already won the UEFA Champions League, Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup with Liverpool. Now, he finally adds a domestic title to his collection.
It was no easy journey for the manager or his players. He first had to take his team through heartbreak in the Champions League final of 2018. Klopp himself had lost six finals prior to lifting the Champions League trophy in 2019.
But, both team and manager have pulled through the pain of defeat to become a formidable force in Europe and in the Premier League.
Six Matches Left
Now that Liverpool have won the title, it will be interesting to see how their season plays out. After all, they have achieved what they can in terms of the league. The Reds are no longer in the FA Cup, and won’t be able to defend their Champions League title since they were knocked out by Atletico Madrid.
One player will still have a smaller trophy to win, though. Mohamed Salah is currently second in the goalscoring charts with 17 goals, behind Jamie Vardy with 19. There are still plenty of other players vying for this accolade. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sits on 17 goals, whilst Salah’s team-mate Sadio Mane has 15.
Perhaps some of the up and coming Liverpool youth players will get a chance. The likes of Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones have already featured a number of times for the first team. Nineteen-year-old Neco Williams played in the 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace. Indeed, Klopp was pretty much forced to play his youngsters in that FA Cup match whilst he took the first team to the Club World Cup final.
What will Liverpool set their hopes on next season? Perhaps it will be something of an even greater scale, a domestic double, or perhaps even another Champions League title.
