Large number of Liverpool Fans are in front of Anfield celebrating their first premier league title in three century.

Supporters set off flares and fireworks after Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Manchester City gave the Reds their first league title in 30 years.

Within half an hour of the result about 2,000 fans had gathered outside the club’s stadium, with some celebrating outside the famous Kop stand.

No attempts were made to dismantle the crowd by police officers at the ground. The Merseyside Police closed roads around Anfield at 23:00 BST and advised motorists to avoid the area.

Assistant Chief Constable Rob Carden said “a large number of people chose to gather outside the stadium” but said it was mostly “good natured”.

He praised the “overwhelming majority” of fans that “recognised now is not the time to gather together to celebrate, and chose to mark the event safely”.

 

It is Liverpool’s 19th top-flight title and their first since 1989-90, when Sir Kenny Dalglish led them to victory.
