The Reds have had their hands at the title after 5-3 win over Chelsea.
Liverpool have lifted the Premier League trophy after a thumping 5-3 win over Chelsea at Anfield, thanks to goals from Trent Alexander Arnold, Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, Firmino and Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Reds were due to be bestowed with the trophy – after getting clear of second-place Manchester City by a large margin – at the end of the game, but they did with an empathic fashion. The victory meant the Reds are now unbeaten in the home for the 59th consecutive game and also ended their 30-year trophy drought.
During the trophy presentation, Liverpool players were found in ecstasy, especially Virgil van Dijk, who claimed it was a dream-come-true moment.
“No one can say anything about our season, everyone can have their opinion about substitutes and water breaks but we won it by a mile,” The star defender said.
“It spurred us on, we had that feeling we were going to get it next year.
“It’s a dream come true for all of us, it’s a fantastic feeling to say I’m a Premier League champion.”
Despite being unable to successfully defend the European reign, the Merseyside club were dominant in the league this term straight off the bat. While suffering only three defeats – two of them came after the pandemic break, Liverpool has garnered a total of 96 points, 18 clear of Man City, with a match left to be played.
Jurgen Klopp, the mastermind behind all the success, also had his say on winning the title. The German manager insisted his men continue the winning momentum and there is also a room for improvement.
“We will not stop. We will not stop. We have challenges, internal challenges. We can improve, obviously.”
“We have players. Naby [Keita] played pretty much only the last part of the season. We pretty much have the chance to take another step. But we have to because others will not sleep.
“There are no guarantees for anything, other than we will try.”
Klopp was also delighted with the fact Liverpool have achieved enormous success as of late. The former Dortmund manager made his way into the Premier League in 2015 and has since won four major titles with the Reds – the highest of his managerial career. The German has reshaped what it looked like a dormant Liverpool side into a European heavyweight.
