Liverpool’s players and staff must still be on cloud nine after finally securing the 2019-20 Premier League title.
The Reds were crowned champions on Thursday evening after Chelsea defeated Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool had left themselves just two points from glory the previous night thanks to their emphatic 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Anfield.
Shortly after Liverpool’s title triumph was confirmed, footage emerged on social media showing the players celebrating wildly.
They’d managed to find somewhere to watch Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Man City together outside and the follow-up party lasted well into the early hours of the morning.
Fast-forward to the weekend and another video has been posted online of the celebrations.
The new video, which is just over a minute long, shows Liverpool’s players and staff spraying bottles of champagne and singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

Liverpool’s players have been waiting months for this moment and it was no surprise to see them making the most of the occasion.
Andy Robertson and Fabinho, in particular, were certainly getting into the spirit of things.
“It was a personal night,” a presumably muzzy-headed Robertson reflected on Friday morning, per the Guardian. “In Madrid we had all our families there but there were also corporate people there and it was one big party, more of a socialising party.
“Last night was probably more emotional. You got to have more one-to-one chats, group chats and reflect on the season. It was really personal last night. Only the people who have been in Melwood every day for the last 12 months were there. That is what made it so special.
“We all came together and we were all hoping that Chelsea would get the win. Luckily they produced it and the party could really start. It went long into the night and rightly so. We deserve it and we have put so much work into it.”
Liverpool’s players will need to wait a little while longer for their title parade.
A spokesperson for Liverpool City Council was quoted by the Liverpool Echo as saying: “We are looking at plans on how a title win can be celebrated fully and would honour the club’s and fan’s ambitions to have a parade - this will only happen when it is safe to do so, lockdown restrictions have eased and the infection rate of the virus has been reduced."
