Liverpool have won the Premier League for the first time in 30 years after Jurgen Klopp's team attained an unassailable lead at the top of the table.

With Chelsea's 2-1 win over Manchester City on Thursday night, Liverpool are now uncatchable at the top of the Premier League an experience that fans haven't known since 1990 when Margaret Thatcher was still the prime minister, which is an astonishing thing for a club of this size and with such a global following.

Fans of the club in Liverpool flocked to Anfield with their fellow Reds to sing and celebrate, despite police warning people not to because of social distancing rules and fears of spreading coronavirus.

Meanwhile, away from Anfield, Liverpool fans were overcome with joy as they finally achieved the dream that they have been chasing for three decades.

Jurgen Klopp, who is impossible not to like, appeared on television after their victory was confirmed and got a little emotion which inevitably set everyone else off.

The Liverpool players also had their own party, which looked a bit like a lads holiday to Aiya Napa circa 2002.

Celebrity supporters as well as former players and managers also posted messages of jubilation.

One person who is unlikely to be saying anything today is Manchester City fan Noel Gallagher, who said in a resurfaced video that Liverpool wouldn't come close to winning the championship as long as Pep Guardiola remained their manager.

Pundit and former Manchester United player Gary Neville, has been quite vocal that should Liverpool win the league he would probably leave the country, which lead to Sky Sports releasing a very amusing video of his colleagues attempting to find him after the final whistle.

Congratulations Liverpool. You thoroughly deserved this title. Now go and nurse those sore heads as you've still got seven games to play and more records to set.
