Liverpool have waited 30 years to become Premier League champions but the wait is almost over.
Although Liverpool will have to wait a little longer following a draw in the Merseyside derby, Chelsea could hand Jurgen Klopp the trophy if the Reds beat Crystal Palace on Wednesday. If Liverpool overcome Palace and City drop points at Stamford Bridge tomorrow, that would be enough to finally confirm the Merseysiders as Premier League champions.
Writing in The Athletic, senior football writer Oliver Kay charted the fall and rise of the Anfield club, with thoughts from Jamie Carragher, Rafael Benitez, Stan Collymore and James Milner.
As City and Liverpool have been miles in front of everyone else in the last couple of years, it would be poetic if the season was settled when the Reds travel to the Etihad Stadium in July, but whether or not that will happen remains to be seen.
Unsurprisingly, lots of Liverpool fans gushed over Kay’s “brilliant” article, with one fan tweeting that it is a “wonderful piece.”

good read – but not like one of main reasons was simply other clubs catching us up and passing us by as we did little/or nothing…
