Liverpool fans gathered to celebrate at Anfield

Thousands of Liverpool fans have gathered at Anfield to celebrate the club’s first Premier League title.

Supporters set off flares and fireworks after Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Manchester City gave the Reds their first league title in 30 years.

Within half an hour of the result, about 2,000 fans had gathered outside the stadium with some celebrating above the players’ entrance.

Many of the fans that congregated at the club’s ground wore face masks.

Cars also gathered outside the ground, with some beeping horns as they passed.

Liverpool’s last top-flight league title came in 1989-90, when Sir Kenny Dalglish led them to victory.
