Liverpool moved into two points from the title with Crystal Palace 4-0 demolished in Anfield on Wednesday.Their twenty-eighth victory in 31 league games this season led Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah to the announcement "It is our time to win the league" and 24 hours later his wish was granted.Liverpool got the benefit they wanted from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.Willian's 78th-minute penalty, awarded by Fernandinho's handball, ended the city's reign which was for two years as champions after Kevin de Bruyne canceled the first match of Christian Polisic.Liverpool won the title before any other Premier League champion, breaking the previous record of five games left by City and Manchester United.It was a painful wait for Liverpool fans around the world, as the coronavirus gap forced them to put the champion on ice after the Premier League suspension in March with the Club team winning two titles.The delay of three months was the last hurdle on the road to Liverpool's long journey to the summit of English football.Liverpool spent years with rivals Manchester United during the Alex Ferguson era before falling behind due to the massive spending from Manchester City and Chelsea.Then, managed by Brendan Rodgers, they missed a notorious golden opportunity to win the title in 2014 when Reds captain Stephen Gerrard made a costly slip in losing the late-season against Chelsea.But the Klopp's team deserved the heroes after an amazing campaign that could end in record style.Klopp's men can break the record for the highest winning margin, which City scored when they finished 19 clear points at the top in the same season.They are also within walking distance of most Premier League wins: 32 by city in 2017/18 and 2018/19.We can play wellKlopp, the first German coach to win the Premier League, has been the architect of the Liverpool Renaissance since the former Borussia Dortmund head arrived at Anfield in 2015.Influenced by his players' belief in "heavy metal" soccer and his "fast-paced" plan, the magical Klopp took its place alongside Liverpool's iconic managers Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, and Kenny Dalglish.When Dalglish brought Liverpool to the title in 1990, the award Shankly once described as "bread and butter" for the club.After years of poor performance, Klopp returned in his unique style and brought trophies to Liverpool.They won the Champions League last season when they beat Tottenham in the final, 12 months after losing to Real Madrid in the same stage of the competition.It was fitting for Liverpool to save one of its most striking offers for the week in which it won the title.After the palace was destroyed, Klopp said: "Imagine if the stadium were full and people would have experienced it live. It would have been amazing."Article source: ndtvAlso Read: FSU Football News: Tayon Holloway offered by Florida State
