What did it take for Liverpool to win the Premier League?! They are giants of English football but it took Liverpool 30 long years to finally win the Premier League title.

How did it happen? As Chelsea beat Manchester City in the Premier League last week, Liverpool was handed their 1st league title since 1990. The Reds as they are fondly called, dominated the proceedings this season and won 28 out of the 31 matches and amassed 86 points. 86 points were good enough for them to win the trophy which many Liverpool fans considered bigger than even the Champions League crown.

Why is that? It took Jurgen Klopp’s side 30 years, which translates into 1,149 Premier League games since 1990 when they grabbed their last title. In this duration, Liverpool tried as many as 7 managers, 239 footballers, and a whopping 1.47 billion pounds trying to win this title. They came close to wining it a gut-wrenching 5 times, but fell short each time. They have performed pretty well in other competitions apart from the Premier League, winning 17 titles over the last 30 years including 2 Champions League trophies. This Premier League title is their fourth major trophy in the last 12 months, following the UEFA Super Cup, Champions League and FIFA World Cup wins.

What happens next? As Sadio Mane said, “We won’t stop here’ – we look forward to the rest of their journey!

Formula 1 racing: The Formula 1 (F1) 2020 season was due to start on March 15 in Austria, but as many as 10 races were cancelled due to the global coronavirus pandemic. The season will finally start on 5th July in Austria. All eyes will be on Defending Champion & 6-time winner Lewis Hamilton, who will once again race for Mercedes. The F1 management has only announced the European leg of the World Championship right now, with Hungary, Great Britain, Spain, Belgium & Italy as the hosts. Great Britain’s iconic Silverstone Circuit will become the first venue in F1’s history to host 2 races in a single season as they are scheduled to host races on both the 2nd & 9th August weekends. Get ready for some action and excitement on the track!
