Liverpool squad filmed celebrating after Willian’s goal seals Premier League title win

Liverpool have been crowned Premier League champions after Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. The Reds have an unassailable 23-point lead at the top of the table, ensuring Jurgen Klopp’s men win the title with seven games to spare.

City headed into the clash with Chelsea knowing they needed victory to keep their hopes of retaining the Premier League alive, at least mathematically.

But Christian Pulisic scored a brilliant solo strike and Willian hit the winner from the penalty spot, either side of an unstoppable Kevin De Bruyne free-kick.
