‘They weren’t on the pitch and still dominated the headlines in the British media. The defeat of the already far beaten second-placed Manchester City in the top game at Chelsea (1:2) officially decided the championship. Liverpool FC is the 2020 English football champions.
The team and the functional team watched the game of the seven match days before the end of the season to 23 points distanced second-placed and in a relaxed atmosphere. With the impressive lead, it was only a matter of time before the first championship in 30 years was completed.
Last year, Liverpool had only one win on the final day of play, despite 97 points, to win the national title – Manchester City became champions at the time. The Reds won the Champions League. Then came the league title. As the father of success, the focus is once again on the German coach Jürgen Klopp.
