It took a three-month hiatus and a Chelsea win but Liverpool have finally confirmed their first Premier League title since 1990. The newly-crowned kings have won it in record time, too, with seven games to go after Chelsea beat Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool blew ahead in the race for the title, beating every Premier League opponent this season on the way to securing a 23-point lead. Jürgen Klopp’s men were simply unstoppable and will get a well-deserved guard of honour in their next game from City who won it so spectacularly twice in a row.

This is another beautiful piece in Frank Lampard’s storied career having also started in the Chelsea team that played Liverpool in the famous game in which Steven Gerrard slipped to deny Liverpool the title in 2014. The Chelsea manager had the unwavering support of the red half of Merseyside this time.

His team were solid and comfortable in possession; with N’golo Kanté deployed as the deepest midfielder, he harried City’s technicians giving Chelsea a platform to go on and attack at the right moments. Mason Mount and Ross Barkley worked hard as double number 10s, pressing superbly in tandem with Christian Pulisic and Willian who then attacked City’s backline with pace.

Tellingly, Chelsea’s youngsters have confirmed the title for Klopp’s men, Lampard would be inspiring them to keep up the hard work and togetherness they displayed against City, in order to get to the levels of consistency Liverpool and City have shown in recent seasons.

The Reds are European, World and now League Champions, and no one could agree less this season. Klopp’s men deserve their fantastic achievement after a terrific start to the season – incredible given each member of their front three was involved in the latter stages of international tournaments over the summer – that even City could not match. The Champions can well achieve the record points tally in a Premier League season with 15 points from their final seven games.


One suspects they will have a real hunger to reach it, given how they’ve dispatched opposition with ruthless efficiency. Breaking City’s 100 points tally, set in 2018, would put them on their own amongst the greatest title-winning sides in English football and after a 30-year wait, Liverpool deserve every special piece of history.
