Hitting new peaks

In 2019/20, Liverpool claimed their first Premier League title in record-breaking fashion.

Liverpool lift Premier League Trophy

In the most unconventional of seasons, Liverpool were crowned Premier League champions for the first time in emphatic style.

Having pushed Manchester City so close in 2018/19, Jurgen Klopp's side began the campaign in the same imperious fashion they had finished the previous one.

By the time they beat West Ham United in February to stretch their unbeaten start to 27 matches and record their 18th straight win, they had taken a record 110 points from their last 38 league encounters, with 36 victories and two draws.

When the season was suspended due to COVID-19 three weeks later, they were just two wins away from ensuring the Premier League Trophy would head to Anfield and the title was sealed within two matches of the restart.

Their 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace was followed by Manchester City's defeat to Chelsea meaning that, with seven fixtures still to play, Liverpool were the earliest Premier League champions in history.

"I have no words, it's unbelievable," said an emotional Klopp having led the Reds to their first title in 30 years.

"It's much more than I ever thought could be possible. Becoming champion with this club is absolutely incredible."

For captain Jordan Henderson, lifting the Premier League Trophy fulfilled a lifelong ambition.

"Winning the Premier League has been a dream of mine since I was a kid," he said. "It's been an amazing season and I am so thankful to be part of this club and team."
