In the immediate aftermath of winning the title, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp couldn’t hide his delight.
He explained: “Good! Pretty good. Honestly, it’s still not settled, still not really got it, but it feels brilliant. It was big and it was a wonderful experience. The whole ride is a wonderful experience but especially last night. It was very special.
“When people spoke about it and thought maybe it’s better to win it against City when we play them [next week] on the pitch, but honestly after the 97 points ride last year plus extension with the Champions League, and this season, and all the years before chasing the Champions League spot, I was thinking I want it as early as possible.
“So, I was completely fine with last night. There was a nice little side story that Christian Pulisic had his hand in it with a really nice goal.
“Honestly, I couldn’t feel better. It’s just a big relief and it feels like freedom, whatever, I don’t know exactly. It’s good.”
