Premier League Trophy

Liverpool has lifted the Premier League trophy for the first time after waiting 30 years to win a league title.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have finally placed their hands on the premier league trophy nearly a month after they were crowned champions.

The Merseyside club have lifted the trophy after defeating Chelsea 5-3 at Anfield stadium.

Fireworks could be heard outside the ground during the second half of the match as Reds fans eagerly-awaited the trophy presentation.

Supporters were unable to watch the match or enjoy the presentation inside the stadium because of measures introduced to stop the spread of coronavirus.

After the match, Liverpool manager Klopp promised supporters “a party” to celebrate their title success but added “he doesn’t know when” it will take place.

Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish was at the stadium to present the trophy to the side’s captain Jordan Henderson.

Club manager Klopp then joined with the players in singing the side’s anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone.

The Reds are one of the most successful teams in English football history having won 19 top-flight titles.

However their success this season marks the first time they have won the Premier League since it was founded in 1992.

Liverpool fans have gathered outside Anfield to celebrate the club’s Premier League win despite warnings to stay at home because of the coronavirus outbreak.

A heavy police presence was in force outside the stadium during what was the Reds’ final home game of the season.

Police introduced a 48-hour dispersal zone around the ground in anticipation of crowds gathering as the trophy was lifted in the empty stadium.

Much of the stadium was fenced off but by 9.45pm a large group had gathered in the road outside the Kop end with flags and flares.

Police vans lined the road and officers stood in cordons.

Thousands of supporters celebrated outside Anfield last month when the team’s first top-flight title in 30 years was confirmed.

Huge numbers gathered at the city’s Pier Head the following night, where police reported violent confrontations.

Superintendent Dave Charnock said: “We’re aware of the significant impact that anti-social behaviour can have on individuals and communities, and we will be targeting people we suspect of being involved in this type of behaviour in the area.

“To the vast majority of law-abiding members of the community and Liverpool fans, I just want to remind them that this order is not about bothering people going about their legitimate daily business.

“We would like to thank the vast majority of you who are adhering to the restrictions currently in place to protect the wider community as well as those who are continuing to keep an eye out for suspicious behaviour and reporting it to us.

“It has never been more important than now to ensure that we all follow Government advice to ensure the safety of those living in Merseyside.”

Ahead of the match, police had joined with the club, council and supporters’ group Spirit of Shankly to ask people to celebrate at home.
