Liverpool emerges English Premier League champions after a thirty-years long wait nobody could have predicted. After Jurgen Klopp’s side had an impressive 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday, Manchester City needed to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday to retain their championship. The defending champions, however, failed to retain the crown as they were beaten 2-1 in London.

The victory ends the thirty years wait as Liverpool won with a topflight title that stretched back to 1990 when Kenny Dalglish’s side won the old Football League championship. This season’s achievement means Liverpool now have 19 titles to their name, one behind Manchester United’s record of 20 first division titles.

Klopp describes winning the title as “absolutely incredible” after the Chelsea win. “I have no words. It is unbelievable. Much more than I ever thought would be possible,” he stated. “Becoming champions with this club is incredible. It is an incredible achievement of my players and pure joy for me to coach them.”

Defeated just once, Klopp and his team have been the dominant team of the season. They put together a record run of eighteen consecutive wins from October through to February 29 and have won every match at home this season. The team won by twenty-three points to second-place City and also set a club record of forty-four matches without defeat, stretching back to last season.

In October 2015, when Klopp joined the club, Liverpool was tenth in the table, struggling to score goals and had collected twelve points from eight games. John William Henry, the club’s principal owner, head of Fenway Sports Group, took to social media to congratulate the team on their magnificent achievement. “This was a season for the ages and the faithful of Liverpool Football Club. It has been an incredible year of magnificent achievement culminating tonight in capturing the Premier League title,” Henry tweeted.
