Liverpool have now won the English Premier League title after a very long wait of 30 years. Thanks in part to Chelsea seeing off Manchester City, to ensure it is mathematically impossible for any team to catch up with them.
Christian Pulisic’s goal had given Chelsea to lead before a wonderful Kevin De Bruyne sparked hopes of a comeback, but Fernandinho’s late red card led to a coolly converted penalty to win the game – and gift Liverpool league glory.
Before Chelsea took on Manchester, Liverpool demolished Crystal Palace courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander Arnold, Sadio Mane and Fabinho.
That win set them on course for the much waited confirmation of the all but ended seasons, bearing in mind the huge point gap.
Liverpool has now won the league with seven games remaining, which is the earliest any side has ever won the Premier League title.
Jurgen Klopp’s men surpassed the achievements of Manchester United in 2000-01 and Manchester City’s ‘centurions’ of 2017-18, which both clinched the league with five games to spare.
