BREAKING: Liverpool crowned Premier League champions

Liverpool are Premier League champions for the 2019/2020 season.

The Reds were confirmed title winners without kicking a ball, following Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Thursday night.

Frank Lampard’s men took the lead through Christian Pulisic’s fine solo effort in the first half.

City levelled through Kevin De Bruyne’s exquisite free-kick.

However, Fernandinho handled the ball in the area, giving away a penalty that Willian put away.

Chelsea’s win ends Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a title.

It is sun down in New York but Reds are raging on into the night throughout the night.

 Typically the center of the party would be the 11th Street Pub in the East Village, which is the headquarters of the Liverpool FC Supporter’s Club of NYC, in addition to the six other bars across the city LFCNY works with to accommodate overflow crowd. But the coronavirus pandemic mostly left the group’s 750-strong membership, which Wells estimates are half Americans and half expats, watching today’s match separately while keeping in touch via Zoom and WhatsApp.

However, “Due to Covid-19 most people watched at home, but a few of our bars with outdoor space were able to host small crowds,” LFCNY president Justin Wells tells the Guardian. “We’re planning some sort of party at 11th Street when it’s safe.”
