  • UEFA Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup already in Anfield trophy cabinet

Liverpool have won the Premier League title, ending a 30-year championship drought, after Manchester City lost 2-1 at Chelsea.

That result confirmed the already inevitable coronation of Jurgen Klopp's side, who have left records in their wake en route to establishing a 23-point lead over Pep Guardiola's City.

The Anfield club enjoyed an impressive win themselves last night in their first home game since the league's COVID-19-enforced hiatus, sweeping aside Crystal Palace 4-0.

Revitalised under the German, Liverpool are now champions of England, Europe and the world, having already won the 2019 UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.
