With Chelsea defeating Manchester City on Thursday, Liverpool FC’s long wait to be crowned the English Premier League champion finally came to fruition.
The English championship is Liverpool’s first in the Premier league era, which started in 1992. Formerly, the club most recently had won the English league 30 years ago in 1990. With the 2019-20 title, the team has 19 titles.
Liverpool fans took to Twitter to share their excitement after the result. And the team’s anthem, “You’ll never walk alone,” proved true.
Here’s what both Liverpool fans and soccer enthusiasts had to say immediately following the victory:
This was a season for the ages and for the faithful of Liverpool Football Club. It has been an incredible year of magnificent achievement culminating tonight in capturing the Premier League title.

This is a remarkable campaign, no matter how much u try to downplay it, no matter how much u hate Liverpool bcuz u support some rival club or have some sort of a strange “fraud Pep” narrative. To drop only 7 Pts after 31 games is unreal.
P.S: I am not a Liverpool fan

Have watched nearly every Liverpool game since I was 14. I was on that bootleg steam life. I promised myself (and had the money saved for years) that if they won the PL title, I’d be there. Of course they win in a year where I can’t enter the UK. Life is weird. Sports weirder.

Don’t understand how anyone could resent Liverpool winning league. Best team by miles. Great manager. Hard working. Fantastic club who are rightly back in conversation with best teams in the world.
Maybe it’s because my club aren’t a title chasing team but I’m happy for them!

Had the pleasure of meeting Klopp and the Liverpool squad before the season started and even as a Chelsea fan, it was impossible not to fall in love with them. Klopp is literally the most enjoyable person I've met in my entire life. That whole team is one of a kind.
