OFFICIAL: Liverpool become PL champions after 30-years

Liverpool have officially become the champions of England thanks to Chelsea who defeated Manchester City 2-1 on Thursday at the Stamford Bridge.

The win gives Liverpool their first ever Premier League trophy in 30-years, MyNigeria.com reports.

Jurgen Klopp's men were first delayed by the COVID-19 interruption earlier in March as the league was suspended for about two months.

With just two wins to clinch the trophy as the league resume on June 17, the Reds' ascension was delayed by the 0-0 Merseyside draw with rivals, Everton.

A 4-0 win for Liverpool against Crystal Palace yesterday meant they needed City to lose or draw to Frank Lampard's men.

Liverpool become the first team to win the league with seven games to go.
