Premier League Top 30 moments: Number 9 - Liverpool win first Premier League title
Jurgen Klopp led Liverpool to their first-ever Premier League title during the 2019-20 season, as the Reds romped to their first top-flight in over 30 years.
After a three-decade wait to be crowned the Champions of England once again, Liverpool looked likely to go unbeaten throughout the entire campaign. In the end they lost just three of their 38 games, racking up 99 points as they won an incredible 32 games to secure a 19th league title in their illustrious history.
Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were sensational in attack, while Alisson and Virgil van Dijk were colossal in defense, captain Jordan Henderson majestic in midfield and full backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson were incredible from start to finish.
From front to back and throughout their entire playing and coaching staff, Liverpool 100 percent deserved this title win as they dazzled with swashbuckling attacking play and Klopp added this title to the UEFA Champions League trophy he’d won 12 months earlier.
With the 2019-20 Premier League season suspended from mid-March to June due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Jurgen Klopp and his side had to wait a little longer to get their hands on the Premier League trophy. They didn’t care though, as the scenes of the hoisting the trophy at Anfield brought so much joy to their fans in Liverpool and around the world.
The long, long wait for another league title was finally over for Liverpool. Just like Jurgen Klopp predicted on his unveiling.
