Liverpool became the champions of England for the first time in thirty years and the Reds will receive the coveted trophy on Wednesday following their game against Chelsea at Anfield, which is also their last home game of the season. And before the title party begins at Merseyside, a footage has emerged of what the Reds fans can expect during the celebrations. Here’s How Liverpool Players Celebrated First Premier League Title in Club's History (See Photos and Videos).
Liverpool were crowned Premier League champions for the first time in their history after Chelsea defeated Manchester City last month. Jordan Henderson, the tenth-title winning Reds captain, will lift the long-awaited trophy in front of an empty Kop following their midweek game against the Blues.

Liverpool were the deserved Premier League champions but amid the coronavirus pandemic, had to wait for much longer than expected to get their hands on the EPL crown. The trophy will be presented to Jurgen Klopp’s men by Reds legend Sir Kenny Dalglish on a special podium surrounded by special banners made by fans.

Fans will not be allowed inside the stadium to take part in the celebrations in order to maintain the social distancing protocols amid the COVID-19 epidemic. Even Liverpool’s request of having player’s families attend the presentation was turned down by the city’s council.
However, with the focus mainly on title ceremony, Liverpool still have a job to do in the field as they are looking to equal Manchester City’s record of most wins in a single Premier League season. Jurgen Klopp’s team needs to win both their remaining matches in the league to tie that extraordinary feat.
