<!– Liverpool are Champions of England –>
By Michael Adeshina
Liverpool FC have ended a three-decade drought to become Premier League champions.
And what a period it has been for the Reds: they won the European Champions League and the Club World Cup in the past year.
Now they have crowned it all with a championship they have been looking for since Coach Kenny Dalglish won it 30 years ago.
Chelsea assisted them to make it past the final hurdle.
This was after defending champions Manchester City faltered 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in London.
After Liverpool hammered Crystal Palace 4-0 on Wednesday, Coach Jurgen Klopp just needed Pep Guardiola and Co to drop points at Stamford Bridge.
He did not need to wait for long.
Former Liverpool target Christian Pulisic – who played under Klopp at Dortmund – got Chelsea off to a flier with a superb breakaway goal.
Kevin De Bruyne’s stunning free-kick pegged the Blues back.
But Willian fired home a penalty to earn a huge three points and send Liverpool fans wild, especially at Anfield.
The players who watched the game live celebrated with champagne.
Fans boozed into the night. And there were flares and fireworks.
Liverpool City Council turned the red light on.
Manchester City offered congratulations in a tweet: “PEP ? Congratulations for Liverpool fans, the manager, the players. Well deserved. Good champion.”
Klopp will now go down in Anfield folklore after he guided Liverpool to the elusive Premier League crown.
And it was won with seven games remaining.
