Liverpool Crowned Premier League Champions After Chelsea Beat 10-Manchester City
Liverpool have been crowned 2019/2020 Premier League champions ending a 30-year wait, Completesports.com reports.
The Reds were confirmed champions after title rivals Manchester City lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.
Chelsea broke the deadlock on 36 minutes through Christian Pulisic who ran from his own half, skipped past the City defence and slotted in a superb goal past Ederson.
In the 55th minute City equalised thanks to Kevin de Bruyne who whipped in a superb free-kick.
Chelsea regained the lead in the 79th minute after Willian converted from the penalty spot following a handball by Fernandinho who was sent off.
It is the first time Liverpool will win the league title since the English top flight was changed from first divisional to the Premier League.
The Jurgen Klopp-led side won the Premier League title the earliest in terms of games remaining (7) beating the previous record of five, jointly held by Manchester Utd (2000-01) and Manchester City (2017-18).
Thursday’s win gives Chelsea a huge boost in their pursuit for a top four finish as they stay fourth on 54 points and five points away from fifth-placed United.
For City, they remain second on 63 points while Liverpool are on 86 points.
