Liverpool have won their first Premier League title after Manchester City lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Reds are confirmed champions without kicking a ball and sit atop the Premier League with 86 points after 31 matches. It is their first top-flight title since 1990.

Chelsea beat City 2-1, with a goal from Christian Pulisic and a penalty from Willian leaving Kevin De Bruyne's free-kick a consolation.

The result means that City can no longer catch Liverpool, to copper-fasten a league finish that has long been known.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp spoke glowingly about his players' efforts, after their 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

"You shouldn’t underestimate how much this team wants it. You should not. This team really wants it; they want to fulfil the wishes of the people at home," Klopp said.

"We all have a common dream, but we have to work for it and we have to work our way for it. We cannot play like other teams, but we can play pretty good stuff – and that’s what the boys did tonight."

Klopp said that he would be watching the Chelsea-Manchester City match.

"I watch the game tomorrow night, not to prepare a celebration – I watch the game because we play against City a week later," said Klopp.

"I have to watch it, especially against Chelsea, who we play as well. This game is a really important game to watch for plenty of reasons. Whatever happens tomorrow night, we have no influence on it, so I'm not too interested, to be honest.

"But I am pretty sure anyway that the game next week against Man City is a must-watch for each football fan on this planet because whatever will be decided or not, two really, really good teams face each other and that will be pretty interesting, to be honest."
