Liverpool has won the English Premier League title for the first time in 30 years.
Jurgen Klopp’s side secured its first-ever title after second-placed Manchester City lost 2-1 to Chelsea in London on Thursday night.
Liverpool supporters flocked to Anfield, joyous at the team’s success, despite the social-distancing rules and restrictions on public gatherings because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The sky turned red with flares and fireworks, and fans sang the club’s famous songs and chants, including the team’s anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone.
On social media, the hashtags #Liverpool and #You’llNeverWalkAlone were trending.
