30 Years Of Wait Is Over... Liverpool Are Crowned 2019/20 Premier League Champions.

Liverpool football club have been officially crowned the 2019/20 Premier League champions for the first time in the club's history after a 30-years of wait, hurts and trials.

The Reds had held their long-awaited celebration since June 25 when they were confirmed champions with seven games to spare.

They finally raised the Premier League trophy on Wednesday night following a 5-3 victory in their final home game to Chelsea this season, which saw eight different goalscorers on the scoresheet for both Liverpool and Chelsea. 

A draw would have secured Champions League football for Chelsea next season but they were bombarded with goals in the first half as Liverpool got the party started at Anfield through Naby Keita's stunner in the 23rd minutes, Trent Alexander-Arnold's converting a fine free-kick in the 38th minutes and Gini Wijnaldum's volley in the 43rd minutes.

Olivier Giroud pulled one back for Chelsea 3minutes into the added time before the half-time break.

Liverpool didn't relent at the beginning of the second half, as Roberto Firmino scored his first Premier League goal at Anfield this season having headed home a sensational cross from Alexander-Arnold's in the 55th minutes, Tammy Abraham reduced the deficit again for Chelsea through Christian Pulisic's brilliant assist in the 61st minutes to make it 4-2.

Pulisic netted the third goal for Chelsea in the 73rd minutes, as Frank Lampard side seemed to have hope on getting an equalizer, but Liverpool showed their superiority once more with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring the last goal on the night via an assist from Andrew Robertson in the 85th minutes, which made it a 5-3 result at full time.

The best moment of the day, came when captain Jordan Henderson, who missed the match due to injury, finally received the trophy from legend Sir Kenny Dalglish, who was the club manager in 1990  when Liverpool last won the league.

Henderson speaking after lifting the trophy said;
We've been waiting a long time,"
"Walking up there was amazing, the lads deserved the moment and thankfully the families were watching.
"To crown it off like that was really special."

All the players and coaching staff sang the club's famous anthem You'll Never Walk Alone on the pitch after lifting the trophy in an empty 53-000 capacity Anfield stadium due amid fears of the corovirus pandemic, with just players, coaches and familie who were allowed on special permission inside the stadium to celebrate.

Despite pleas for supporters and fans to stay away, they crowded around the stadium even prior to kick-off, with constant cracking of fireworks outside the stadium thtough-out the memorable night.

Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp when asked how he feels at the great moment, he told Sky Sports;
You make the best of what you can,"
 "Today our families are allowed to be there which is incredible. It means the world to me.

"Everything would be better with fans but for months we knew that would be impossible. A few months ago I thought it was impossible that we play football.
"I couldn't be happier to be honest, it would be perfect if the stadium would be full but we cannot change it. What we tried to do is make it clear to the people that we really do it for them. It's an absolutely great moment."

Klopp also sent a message to fans who were watching at home: 
"If you don't see that we do it for you, I can't help you"...
"You made us happy, we all should celebrate at home. Prepare for a party and when this shit virus has gone we will have a party."
