Liverpool FC set to lift English Premier League title after Chelsea game

Liverpool FC will finally get to lay their hands on the Premier League trophy for the very first time ever tomorrow (July 22) night when they play Chelsea at Anfield in their final home game of the memorable season.

While the main event for the hosts will be after the match, the match itself is of great importance to the visitors (Chelsea) as they hope to secure a spot in the top-four with just game to go.

Alan Hansen was the last Liverpool captain to lift the league trophy above his head around 30 years ago and that was before the Premier League was even in existence.

On Wednesday night, Jordan Henderson will become the 10th Liverpool player to do so, adding his name to the list which includes Hansen, Graeme Souness, Phil Thompson, Emlyn Hughes, Tommy Smith, Ron Yeats, Willie Fagan, Donald McKinlay and Alex Raisbeck.

It will be a trophy presentation with a difference given the lack of fans in the stadium, with a special podium set to be erected on the Kop and club icon Sir Kenny Dalglish being drafted in to hand out the medals.

It is a moment which has been longed for by Liverpool fans for a generation and will mark the crowning glory of a season which will go down in English football history, although most previous champions will tell you that defeat in the game before lifting the trophy takes some of the shine off it.

Liverpool will therefore be hoping to mark a celebratory occasion with victory over the team that handed them the title with seven games to spare, with Chelsea’s triumph over Manchester City last month officially sending the trophy to Anfield.

Since then there has undoubtedly been a drop-off from Liverpool, which in the grand scheme of things will be forgotten about relatively quickly but will still irk both manager Jurgen Klopp and his players.
