Liverpool have been handed the Premier League trophy on Wednesday night at the Anfied stadium after their thrilling 5-3 win over Chelsea.

Liverpool legend, Sir Kenny Dalglish, handed the silverware to Jordan Henderson, the captain of The Reds, who was joined by his teammates to celebrate their first Premier League title in 30 years.

 

 

With supporters absent due to the coronavirus restrictions, Liverpool had built a stage in their iconic stand for the presentation, while fans gathered and celebrated outside of Anfield.

Gazelle.com reports that Liverpool had secured the title already with seven games to spare on June 25, after Chelsea defeated second-placed Manchester City, but The Reds had to endure for the end of their final home league game of the season before they could finally lay their hands on the silverware.

Liverpool thrashed Frank Lampard’s side to guarantee that they end the season unbeaten at Anfied.

Reds boss, Jurgen Klopp, had urged his players, staff and the club’s supporters to treasure the moment.

“On Wednesday, we will cherish it. In this moment, we have to stop for a second, look at it, be really happy about it, enjoy it together with our fans all over the world, in heart and mind, and make it the most special moments of our life so far.

“Being here champions is the most special thing you can imagine. We all have to make it a special moment inside and keep it forever inside.”
