Liverpool are the Premier League champions for the first time ever after tonight’s 2-1 win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge over Liverpool’s closest competitors, Manchester City, who were really not that close either. In fact, no one could hang with the Reds in the league this season, though we did eliminate them from the FA Cup, which is kind of funny.

Also amusing is that it’s Chelsea who thus clinch Liverpool’s first top flight title in 30 years. You’re welcome, Mo Salah & Co!

Of the last six Premier League titles, Chelsea have won two and won two more for others. We won in 2014-15 and 2016-17, clinched Leicester City’s most unlikely title in 2015-16 with a 2-1 win (overdue edit: 2-2 DRAW that felt like a win) over Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge, and now clinched Liverpool’s long-awaited triumph with another 2-1 win at the Bridge, this time over Manchester City.

Eden Hazard’s goals won in 2015 and 2016. Michy Batshuayi got us over the line in 2017. Today, it was Willian’s turn, in what could be one of his final goals in a Blue shirt.

Making history, as usual.
