A City Celebrates: Social Media Reactions Show What Liverpool’s Title Means To So Many

Liverpool won its first league title in 30 years and the tears were flowing.

Liverpool did it. 

After 30 years, the Reds are back on top of their perch, having claimed their first Premier League title and 19th domestic championship on Thursday.

Well, Christian Pulisic and Chelsea technically did it, beating defending champion Manchester City 2-1 to ensure Liverpool could not be caught atop the table. But in reality, no one was ever going to catch Jurgen Klopp’s dynamos.

Led by Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané, Roberti Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and so many more impressive talents, Liverpool claimed the Premier League title faster than any other club ever has (in terms of matches played). The squad is on pace to rack up 105 points, which would easily eclipse the previous record of 100 set by City in 2018. 

Reactions around the world and especially in Liverpool showed just what the long-awaited title meant for so many diehard fans. And while I personally can’t stand most Liverpool fans, you can’t help but feel happy for the lot (while hoping my team someday figures out how to do more than just beat Southampton.) Watching Klopp and Henderson try to give interviews while on the verge of tears is simply adorable.

Here are some of the best Liverpool reactions from around the world, sadly some of which included some disturbing lack of social distancing.
