Liverpool are the champions of England after going on a massive run in the league to become Premier League champions for the 2019-20 season.

Liverpool have been dominant in the Premier League since last season, as they have only lost two games in two seasons so far.

The Reds were unfortunate to lose the league last season to a very dominant Manchester City side, but went on to win it this season.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that winning the league next season will be difficult, as he expects the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United to fight for the league.

“Yes, City will be strong next season, United will be strong next season, Chelsea will be strong next season,” Klopp said when asked if he expected City to be their main challengers in the 2020/21 campaign.

“They all will be strong next season. Out of the three of them, it’s obvious City is just an outstanding team.

“United are in outstanding shape and Chelsea are in really good shape and doing some interesting business.

“Tottenham will not sleep, Arsenal will not sleep – they’ll come. Leicester will be there.

“The thing is we have to play 38 games during a year and it’s who wins most of them [who will] win the league.

“We will not defend the title next year, we will attack the next one. That will be difficult enough.

“What we achieved last year, in this case last week, is something for the history books.”
