Liverpool fans celebrate outside Anfield after securing title thanks to Chelsea

Liverpool fans were celebrating on the streets of Merseyside, and outside Anfield, after becoming Premier League champions for the very first time.

The Reds knew if Manchester City failed to take three points at Chelsea this evening, the long-awaited title was finally theirs.

Christian Pulisic opened the scoring in the first-half for the west London outfit, before Kevin De Bruyne equalised with a stunning free-kick.

But Willian’s late penalty gave the Blues a much-needed home win in their pursuit for Champions League football under Frank Lampard.

City’s defeat means Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a top flight crown is over, and prompted celebrations outside the Reds’ stadium.

Speaking this week, Klopp praised his side’s belief in what has been a remarkable season.

“We all have a common dream but we have to work for it and we have to work our way for it. We cannot play like other teams but we can play pretty good stuff and that’s what the boys did tonight.
