There will be some sore heads on the red side of Merseyside this morning.

Liverpool were confirmed as the 2019/20 Premier League champions last night after Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City ensured that the Reds could not be caught between now and the end of the season.

Goals either side of a Kevin De Bruyne free-kick from Christian Pulisic and Willian were enough to seal all three points for Chelsea, after Pep Guardiola’s side had Fernandinho sent-off for giving away a penalty for handball, which resulted in Willian netting the winner.

Whilst a third successive victory for Frank Lampard’s side will have gone a long way in boosting their chances of securing a top-four finish this season, the night belonged to Liverpool, as their 30-year wait to finally become English champions once again came to an end.

Understandably, Liverpool’s players, who have dominated the Premier League title race right from the very first whistle this season, celebrated together as they tasted the sweet taste of success.

Amongst those to lead the celebrations was colossus centre-back Virgil van Dijk, who has played an instrumental role in the Reds’ title tilt this season.

The Dutchman watched the Blues’ clash with City with a great amount of anticipation because of what was riding on the encounter.

“I don’t get to watch too many games,” van Dijk told BT Sport shortly after the full-time whistle blew at Stamford Bridge. “But the game, it felt like it was taking ages.

“It was just never-ending.

“When the free kick went in for Kevin [De Bruyne to tie it for City], I was getting more nervous. I haven’t been that nervous in a while. But after that it was just celebration time and we all enjoyed it; we’re all proud of each other.”

On how it felt to become a Premier League winner, the former Southampton star added: “The feeling, I can’t even describe it to be honest.

Liverpool, with seven games left to play this term, could still smash the 100-point barrier and secure the title with the highest tally of points in Premier League history.
