Liverpool to lift premier league title after Chealsea game.

Published

on

Liverpool will finally get their hands on the Premier League trophy for the very first time on Wednesday night when they welcome Champions League-chasing Chelsea to Anfield in their final home game of an unforgettable season.

While the main event for the hosts will be after the game, the match itself is of paramount importance to the visitors as they look to secure a top-four spot with a game to spare. Alan Hansen was the last Liverpool captain to lift the league trophy above his head some 30 years ago, before the Premier League was even in existence. On Wednesday night, Jordan Henderson will become the 10th Liverpool skipper to do so, adding his name to an illustrious 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. The Merseysiders had a glorious chance to record the best single season in English top-flight history having dropped only two points from their opening 27 games, but since then they have won four, drawn two and lost three. In all competitions Liverpool have now lost more games (six) than they have won (five) over their last 13 outings, the most recent defeat coming at the hands of Arsenal at the Emirates courtesy of uncharacteristically sloppy errors from Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker.

That result ended any hope Liverpool had of breaking the all-time points record, with 99 now the limit heading into their final two games of the campaign, but there are still a few landmarks up for grabs.

“I habe suffered,my children must not” – Small doctor.

In line with recent happenings in the country, one thing Nigerians demanded relentlessly was that President Muhammadu Buhari addressed them.

After days of asking, he eventually did on October 22, and his speech left a trail of mixed reactions from nationals. Nigerian artiste Small Doctor was one of the disappointed bunch. According to the musician, Buhari’s nationwide broadcast left him numb. He stated that he has suffered as a Nigerian but his children must not go through the same experience.

He said:

“That speech Just Made me go numb. I have suffered, my kids must not suffer. #EndsSARS #EndBuhari.”
