Liverpool has not conquered the English league since 1990 and therefore it is the first time that they have achieved it in the Premier format. The long wait for Anfield’s fans has ended. Only Manchester United has won the English championship more times than Liverpool (20); so Jurgen Klopp’s team is now one to match the Old Trafford team’s record for league titles.
Klopp takes over from Pep Guardiola, winner of the Premier in the last two seasons. The work of the German coach Liverpool has come this far with the unmistakable seal of his coach; with the same qualities that a year ago allowed him to lift against Tottenham at Wanda the sixth Champions League in ‘network’ history. His attacking trident (17 goals Salah, 15 Man, 8 Roberto Firmino), Van Dijk as the leader of the defense and cornerstone of the team the best pair of world wingers (Alexander-Arnold and Robertson), Alisson with 12 games without conceding a goal.
Only one match has been lost by Liverpool. which has swept after this Premier 3-0 against Watford. Two draws, 1-1 against Manchester United and 0-0 against Everton. The rest, 28 victories, accumulating records. And the ‘reds’ want more.
