After 30 years, Liverpool finally got what it has been working hard for these last years, the English Premier League title facing all odds despite it being a period which has seen the coronavirus pandemic cause many sports activities to be put on hold.
Head coach, Jürgen Klopp was more than excited and expressed his joy towards the historical moment for a team that has seen its share of troubles throughout the Premier League years facing against tough teams like Manchester City, Chelsea and Man U.
“I am not the guy who is going to shout: ‘We are going to conquer the world!’” said Klopp at his unveiling.
‘Liverpool has been able to win their trophy without kicking a ball’, says Lucy, a sportswriter for Newslibre. The long-awaited result came to closure after Chelsea were able to clinch a win against Manchester City, giving the Anfield boys what they deserved after 30 years of wait.
Speaking to Sky Sports, an emotional Jurgen Klopp said “I have no words. It’s the best thing I can imagine and more than I could have ever dreamed of. It’s unbelievable. Much more than I ever thought would be possible.”
Liverpool win the Premier League title breaking records with just 7 games still left to play
Manchester City’s defeat on Thursday saw Liverpool break yet another Premier League record, winning a title with the most remaining games (7). This is the latest in a growing list of shattered benchmarks, and there are still seven games left to play in the season. Here’s what Jurgen Klopp’s dominant side have managed so far:
- 23 – Most consecutive home wins (9th February 2019 – present)
- 18 – Most consecutive wins (27th October 2019 – 24th February 2020). Joint with Manchester City.
- 12 – Most Premier League assists in a season by a defender (Trent Alexander-Arnold). Joint with himself in 2018/19.
- 7 – Winning a title with the most remaining games.
- 5 – Jurgen Klopp: Most Premier League Manager of the Month awards in a single season.
- Defeated all league opponents at least once in a season. Joint with Chelsea (2005/06), Manchester United (2010/11 and 2017/18) and Manchester City (2017/18 and 2018/19).
- The latest team to win the Premier League title (25th June).
Some would think Liverpool has been operating at certain levels that break the very laws of physics, putting on a steady and yet strong performance throughout the summer. The team didn’t just outrun the rest of the competition, they demolished it.
A big congrats to Jurgen Klopp, who has worked hard to build a high performing team while exhibiting patience, trust and commitment to his players and the entire team. It’s a good day to be a Liverpool fan.
