Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp calls Premier League title 'unbelievable'

Chelsea restored their five-point advantage over Manchester United and Wolves with a hard-fought victory at Stamford Bridge, goals from Christian Pulisic and Willian securing three points in a result that finally saw City relinquish the title and Liverpool crowned as champions.

After Kevin De Bruyne equalized with a free kick and Raheem Sterling hit the post, Pulisic nearly added a second goal but had his shot cleared off the line by defender Kyle Walker after beating Ederson.

"Two seasons ago we were 25 points in front of Liverpool and the next season they recovered".

"After 30 years without the title they played every game this season like it was their last with incredible focus".

It is the first time Liverpool has won the league title since 1990 when the top tier was called the First Division.

Liverpool's title marks Klopp's third league trophy, having won the Bundesliga twice with Borussia Dortmund.

"But today against Manchester City when they play a false nine and they've got bodies in midfield, it's really tough so we had to tweak a little bit at half-time, suffer in the first 20 minutes of the second half, but I think we deserved the win on chances".

"We have to take a little perspective, be humble, and say, "Not all the time we can win", he said.

Liverpool were in scintillating form on Wednesday night after they thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 to put pressure on Manchester City ahead of City's trip to face Chelsea on Thursday. "It's much more than I ever thought, to become champions with this outstanding club is unbelievable". Fair play to them of course - I give them full credit. I want to thank all our supporters watching us from all corners of the world.

"We just have to look at ourselves", Lampard added.

"But we'll enjoy this, we'll celebrate, but then I know in the next few days they'll be straight onto the next game, which is City, and finishing the season off as well as we can".
