Liverpool has claimed their first ever Premier League title, and their first league title for 30 years after Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat at Chelsea tonight.
Christian Pulisic and Willian gave Chelsea a 2-1 win over Manchester City, crowning Liverpool the latest Premier League champions.
Pep Guardiola’s side had the chance to prolong the Reds’ 30-year wait at least until the two sides meet at the Etihad Stadium next week, but the title was within touching distance when Christian Pulisic gave Frank Lampard’s side a 36th-minute lead.
Kevin De Bruyne’s spectacular free-kick brought City level and Raheem Sterling hit the post, but their vulnerability on the break was eventually punished when Fernandinho was sent off after blocking the shot on the goal line, denying Chelsea a goal. The defender had no complaints about the decision and Chelsea used the opportunity to extend their lead once again.
