How did Liverpool win it’s 19 top-flight championships?
After years of trying, may Liverpool just came to realize that they would never hear, “Liverpool are the champions.” This was further elevated by last season when City peeped Liverpool by a single point. However, Liverpool came back with a bang and broke several records this season.
For starters, it is the first time in the history of English top-flight that a team has won the championship with seven games to go. The reds have scored seventy goals and kept 14 clean sheets. With the likes of Salah and Mane leading the line with 17 and 14 goals, respectively. While their fullbacks are the assist kings with Trent getting 12 assists and Robertson a little far behind with 8 assists. They can easily smash the most points, most win record in a season as well.
30 years of hurt
In 1990, Liverpool legendary manager Kenny Dalglish helped the Reds reach the pinnacle of English Football. The future was bright; However, things didn’t fall for them. Their highest ever goalscorer Ian Rush even return to Anfield, but it didn’t happen. The club spends a whopping 1.5 billion dollars during this time on 229 players, which included some world-class players such as the likes of Gerrard, Suarez, Dudek, etc. but none could add to the tally of Liverpool premier league titles. They finished runners-up five times during this period, they even won the Champions League twice, and three Fa cups but the EPL title was still elusive to them. Every Liverpool fan turned from a believer to a doubter.

A day before the clash at Stamford Bridge, Liverpool faced a difficult match against Crystal Palace, which a few years ago derailed the reds title hopes. However, this Liverpool was having none of it as they thrashed Palace four-nil while palace didn’t even register a touch inside Liverpool’s thirty-yard circle.
