Take a look at the biggest moments in the Reds' season after they were crowned 2019/20 champions

Now confirmed as champions, Liverpool have been the dominant force throughout the 2019/20 campaign and have overcome a series of pivotal challenges along the way.

From Sadio Mane's last-gasp header against Aston Villa to a devastating seven-minute spell at Leicester City, the Reds' title push has contained several unforgettable moments.

Here we look at five key matches that defined their historic season.

James Milner's penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time preserved Liverpool's winning start after eight matches.

The Reds took the lead shortly before half-time through Mane, only to be pegged back by James Maddison with 10 minutes remaining. 

Milner then kept his composure from 12 yards after Mane was fouled to secure a thrilling victory.

Late goals by Andrew Robertson and Mane earned Klopp's men a dramatic comeback victory at Villa Park.

Trezeguet put Villa in front after 21 minutes and despite Liverpool piling on the pressure, it looked as if it might not be their day.

But Robertson stormed forward to head in with three minutes remaining, before Mane glanced in Trent Alexander-Arnold's corner four minutes into stoppage time to complete an incredible turnaround.

 

Liverpool made a real statement as they beat Manchester City, the 2017/18 and 2018/19 champions, in a dominant display.

First-half goals by Fabinho and Mohamed Salah put the home side in control.

Mane added a third on 51 minutes before Bernardo Silva's consolation goal for City.

The win left Liverpool eight points clear at the top after 12 matches. 

 

This time it was Roberto Firmino who struck late as Liverpool won at Crystal Palace.

Mane opened the scoring in the 49th minute but Wilfried Zaha equalised with eight minutes to go.

It only took three minutes for the Reds to retake the lead, with Firmino firing in from close range to secure another crucial three points. 

 

Liverpool produced one of their best performances of the season, triumphing emphatically at their nearest challengers on Boxing Day.

After lifting the FIFA Club World Cup just five days earlier in Doha, Liverpool showed no signs of fatigue as they laid down a marker at King Power Stadium.

Firmino opened the scoring on 31 minutes, followed by three goals in seven scintillating second-half minutes.

It included a superb strike by Alexander-Arnold, who also provided three assists in the match.

The victory took the visitors 13 points clear of the second-placed Foxes.
