Liverpool takes first Premier League champion title in 30 years after Chelsea beats Man City

The Liverpool Football Club has clinched the Premier League championship after Manchester City lost out 2-1 to Chelsea, handing the Reds their nineteenth title following a 30-year drought.

Man City needed a win on Thursday for any hope of catching up to Liverpool on the table, but its defeat at Stamford Bridge guarantees the Reds will take the title come July, the club’s first since 1990.

Liverpool’s victory comes amidst an odd season, interrupted by a three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus. Despite earlier suggestions the campaign might be called off altogether, the league came back to life this month and allowed the club its historic win.
