Liverpool are top-flight champions for the first time since 1990 thanks to Chelsea's 2-1 win over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

Jurgen Klopp's side can finally celebrate the Anfield club's maiden Premier League triumph, after Christian Pulisic and Willian grabbed Chelsea a turbulent victory over City in west London.

Kevin De Bruyne whipped in a wonderful, equalising free-kick for City, but Willian coolly converted a penalty once Fernandinho was sent off for handball on a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) check.

Liverpool's coronation has been on the cards since Christmas but was delayed and even under threat due to the coronavirus shutdown.

Now, though, the Merseyside party can start in earnest, after Chelsea played Premier League kingmakers for the second time in four years. Their 2-2 draw with Tottenham in west London in 2016 sealed Leicester's first-ever Premier League crown.
