Everyone knows there is only one Premier League trophy. And, for the first time, it belongs to Liverpool.

Runaway leaders at the summit, the Reds have become champions of England for the 19th time in their history after ending a 30-year wait to claim the title.

When and where Liverpool pick up the trophy has yet to be determined.

And then there’s the small matter of the parade, which may not even take place this year, such is the uncertainty over the return of crowds due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, there is more clarity regards the destination of commemorative medals for Jurgen Klopp’s squad and his coaching staff.

Liverpool will receive 40 commemorative medals made of silver that are 2.25in (5.7cm) in diameter.

Premier League rules state they can be distributed to the manager, players and officials as the club see fit, as long as every player who has made at least five top-flight appearances this season gets one.

Which players will receive a medal?

There are 21 Liverpool players who are guaranteed to receive a commemorative Premier League medal.

Goalkeepers Alisson Becker and Adrian are both well over the required appearance total, so too defenders Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Joe Gomez.

In midfield, Gini Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Fabinho, Adam Lallana and Naby Keita have sufficient outings, as do forwards Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Divock Origi.

Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip will both be awarded a medal despite their combined Premier League appearances not approaching either of the two other Reds centre-backs.

And Xherdan Shaqiri just qualifies with six outings, while Takumi Minamino’s substitute appearance against Crystal Palace moved him on to the required five.

Who could also receive a medal?

Well, with the Reds still having seven Premier League games to play, there’s every chance anyone on the club’s books could claim a medal.

Liverpool are Premier League champions

Realistically, though, there are a handful of youngsters who could reach the required number of appearances.

Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliot have both played twice in the Premier League, while Neco Williams made his debut in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace. All three will hope for further chances before the end of the campaign.
