Liverpool fans celebrate outside Anfield | VIDEO

Liverpool were crowned the English Premier League champions after Chelsea handed Manchester City a 2-1 defeat on Thursday evening.

Chelsea took the lead in the 36th minute through Christian Pulisic. In the second half, City drew level through Kevin De Bruyne who scored a beautiful freekick. However, in the 78th minute, Willian scored from the spot after Fernandinho was sent off for handling the ball inside the penalty area.

The Blues’ victory was enough to hand Liverpool their first EPL title after 30 years of waiting. Liverpool fans were super excited and took their time to celebrate outside Anfield stadium.

Liverpool have won the 2019-20 Premier League, their first title since the competition began in 1992-93. It is their 19th top-flight crown in all and their first since 1990; only Manchester United (20) have been champions of England more times.

Liverpool have now been crowned champions of England in eight different decades (the 1900s, 1920s, 1940s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and the 2020s); this is more than any other club.

The gap of 30 years between Liverpool’s last title in 1990 and this year is the eighth longest between two top-flight championships by any side in England, and the longest since Manchester City won the 2011-12 Premier League, 44 years after their previous top tier title in 1968.
