Liverpool crowned Premier League champions after Man City beaten by Chelsea

Liverpool have been crowned Premier League champions, ending the club’s 30-year wait for a top-flight title.

The Reds’ top spot finish was confirmed on Thursday evening after second-place Manchester City failed to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. 

The result leaves Jurgen Klopp’s men 23 points ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side with just 21 left to play for.

It is confirmation of what has been apparent for a long time, given Liverpool’s dominance during the campaign, of which there was further evidence on Wednesday evening when they thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0. 

Klopp’s men have lost just once all season – a 3-0 defeat by Watford at Vicarage Road back in February – and have dropped points on only two other occasions during the campaign. 

They won each of their opening eight fixtures in the Premier League this term before being held to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford by rivals Manchester United in October.

After that blip, they embarked on an incredible run that saw them pick up three points in all of their next 18 top-flight fixtures.
