Liverpool lift Premier League trophy after eight goal thriller

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson lifted the Premier League trophy after a 5-3 win over Chelsea on the Kop at a near-empty Anfield. 

It was an emotional night as Liverpool players were joined on stage by Kenny Dalglish and other Liverpool legends were in attendance.

Henderson received the trophy from Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish, who was manager when Reds last won the league in 1990, during a spectacular ceremony.

As the trophy was lifted a night of partying for fans worldwide began. Fireworks were set off inside and outside Anfield as people turned out in their hundreds to greet players on their way to the game with flair being let off. 

The party was nearly ruined when Chelsea scored a third and looked like scoring a fourth. It was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal which sealed the win, rocketing a ball across the penalty box into the back of the net. 

Speaking on Match of the Day, left back Robertson said that he expects teams to improve and try and cut the gap next season.

Yet the full-back argued that the way his Reds teammates spur each other on meaning that they can also improve as they look to retain their crown.

"Obviously, the anniversary of signing for this club yesterday, and today, we lifted the trophy. 

"It’s been an amazing three years for me. I love this club."

 "I love playing for it and hopefully the success carries on because that feeling of lifting trophies, you never get bored of it.  

"We’ve been phenomenal all season. Every lad has pushed each other to the maximum all season and that’s why we’re so far ahead of everyone this season.

"It’s about not resting on that. Every team will improve next year and we know we can do the same."
