Liverpool were awarded for their excellent and impressive 2019/2020 premier league season with their first ever premier league title in 30 years. After coming so close to winning it last season, they were left disappointed as Manchester City scooped it away the second time by just 1 point clear off liverpool.
Liverpool have been the most formidable team in the premier league campaign this season, making history for being the first premier league team to win the league with just seven games remaining to play to end the 2019/2020 premier league season. The champions of Europe indeed have showed a clear glimpse why they are the Champions of Europe.
It has always remain a tradition in the premier league that any team who wins the league be given an applaudable guard of honor by the next team they face,and during Liverpool’s premier match with Manchester City, Football’s first socially distant guard of honour took place last night at the Etihad.
Liverpool received a polite appalause on arriving the pitch last night before the kick off of the match.
Liverpool wrapped up the league title last week after previous champions, City were defeated 2-1 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, giving Liverpool an unassailable 23-point lead with seven games remaining of the season
Liverpool’s first game since being confirmed as Premier League champions did not go as plan as deposed title-holders Manchester City romped to a 4-0 win at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday.
Kevin De Bruyne penalty and clinical finishes from Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden put the game to bed before half-time, while an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain own goal in the second half added to the ignominy.
Liverpool remain whopping 20 points ahead of City, who are 11 clear of third-place Leicester City.
The visitors had started brightly, Mohamed Salah crashing a low effort against the post inside the opening 20 minutes.
City soon hit the front, though, De Bruyne stroking home a 25th-minute penalty after Sterling was hauled down by Joe Gomez following a sumptuous turn.
Sterling made it 2-0 when he collected Foden’s pass inside the area and cleverly clipped past Alisson from eight yards.
Foden added a sublime third shortly before the break, firing over Alisson after the brilliant De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan had combined to carve open Liverpool’s defence.
Substitute Oxlade-Chamberlain then turned into his own net in the 66th minute as he stretched to clear Sterling’s effort on goal.
City substitute Riyad Mahrez had a stoppage-time goal ruled out by VAR after a handball by Foden in the build-up, but it mattered little as the damage had been well and truly inflicted on Klopp’s men by then.
