Liverpool FC Champions of England: How it feels to win Premier ...

Official! Liverpool have been crowned the premier league champions after 30 years of waiting. This the first title of the Reds in the Premier League and what a dominating way to win it. Liverpool became England’s earliest ever champion, winning it in just 31 matchdays. 23 points clear of Guardiola’s City, Liverpool ran the show this season. There was not a single moment where it felt they might not win it.

As Guardiola correctly said, Liverpool played every match as if it was final. Why shouldn’t they? After coming agonisingly close last year, 97 points and no title does feel disappointing. Klopp’s men were more determined than ever to win the title this season.

Also, the fans have been waiting for glory for a long time. The infamous Gerrard slip, last year’s goal-line clearance against City, the pandemic just made the Reds wait longer. But now they have achieved it. With Jurgen Klopp at the helm, the reds were an unstoppable force for more than two seasons and now they finally have their reward.

The chants of “Allez, Allez, Allez” were heard through the city of Liverpool when Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1. Perhaps, even the restrictions due to COVID-19 failed to contain the joys of the reds. Who can blame them? The party was pending for 30 years and they fully deserved it.

30 years of sorrow, agony, and drama came to an end with the final whistle at Stamford Bridge. The streets of Liverpool were filled by the fans setting off fireworks and flares. “You will never walk alone” as they say, was echoed throughout the city.

The players would have loved to celebrate it with their fans at Anfield, but the pandemic had different plans. However, as Klopp said, he would not mind celebrating the title with fans even in the middle of next season.

‘Null and Void’ was the most haunted term for Liverpool in the last 3 months. It did look like a reality as the pandemic forced the league to stop which was only done before, during the World War. The league did restart after 3 months and the first match for the Reds was the Merseyside Derby. A 0-0 draw delayed the ceremony, but a Chelsea win gifted them the title.

Klopp’s gegenpressing and heavy-metal football has restored a winning feeling at Anfield. The Champions League win last year displayed the rejuvenation that Klopp did for Liverpool. The players at his helm currently, were far better than the ones which existed when he arrived.

The departure of Coutinho did not derail their progress as they used the money to sign Alisson and Van Dijk to strengthen their defensive side. Patience was the key and credit to the Liverpool management and owners who stuck with Klopp patiently.

Liverpool, one of the most dominating teams during the “First Division” era were unable to win a single title since the inception of the Premier League in 1992.

It was the rise of their rivals Manchester United under the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson. The Manchester side eclipsed Liverpool to become the most successful English side with 20 league titles. During the 2000s and some part of the 2010s, Liverpool were nothing but a fading force.

They came close to the title in 2014 under Brendan Rodgers, to eventually finish 2 points behind champions Manchester City. Yes, that was the year of the infamous Gerrard slip, a moment that derailed Liverpool’s season.

The arrival of Jurgen Klopp did not excite many as he was not a proven winner. Liverpool needed a manager who could win the championship. At the start, it looked impossible, but here we are! Sticking with Klopp paid dividends for Liverpool as he won them the Champions League as well as the Premier League in 2 years.

Now we have a revamped Liverpool side who can scare off even the Madrid’s and Barcelona’s. This is where Liverpool belong, the top. An elite club that was knocked off its perch has finally risen again.

In the coming years, this side can go on to dominate European football if it stays consistent. Also, with the fan support that they have, they will never walk alone.
