Liverpool are officially the 2019-20 Premier League champions.

The Reds sealed their first league title since 1990 on Thursday evening after Manchester City lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

City needed to avoid defeat to ensure Liverpool’s wait continued for at least one more week.

But Willian’s penalty in the second half earned all three points for the Blues - and handed Liverpool the title in the process.

Of course, it was only a matter of time before Jurgen Klopp’s side were finally crowned champions.

Their emphatic 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night left them requiring just two more points from their remaining seven fixtures.

However, they wrapped up the title just 24 hours later without kicking a ball thanks to Chelsea.

Christian Pulisic’s solo goal on the stroke of half-time put the west London outfit 1-0 up, before Kevin De Bruyne’s exquisite second-half free-kick levelled the scores.

But Willian’s 78th-minute penalty sealed the victory for Chelsea and, more importantly, the title for Liverpool.

Although Liverpool’s players weren’t allowed to watch the match together indoors due to social distancing rules, it seems a group of them watched it on an outdoor TV at one of their houses.

The video shows everyone in the group celebrating wildly after Willian’s penalty and ends with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shouting “Come on!”.

Watch it here...

And that was followed by this video at the full-time whistle...

What a night they’re going to have!
