From Liverpool striker Mohammed Salah to captain Jordan Henderson and defender Andy Robertson celebrated the team's 19th Premier League triumph, which ended the 30-year long title drought.

 

Chelsea defeated Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Thursday and Liverpool now have an unassailable 23-point lead over City with seven games left in the competition.

Reds were last crowned as England's top-flight champions in 1989-90 season.

The Reds have won 28 of their 31 Premier League matches this season.

Livepool's Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum said: "It's difficult to describe but I can say that I'm really happy and really pleased that I can be a part of this team, be a part of this club."

Defender Andy Robertson stressed that the club's united approach played a big part in their title triumph, noting that they are like one big family.

"We had to wait 13 weeks, it was 13 long weeks with uncertainty, but a lot of our fans had to wait 30 years so it was a short time compared to what they've had," Andy Robertson told Liverpool's official website.

"As a squad we're so close. We love coming in to training every single day. If somebody is having a bad game, we dig them out of a hole and we stick together on the pitch, we stick together off the pitch - that's why this squad is so special. I love being a part of it," Robertson told Liverpool's official website.

"We're all kind of brothers and we have a dad figure in the gaffer and he's the one that leads us in the right direction. Him and his staff have been second to none, to be fair, since I've came here. This season they've been excellent to us going, keep us hungry, keep us motivated. Motivation has never been a struggle. As players we've always been hungry and we always wanted to win trophies for this club. Luckily, we're now showing that in the last 12 months," he added.
