Liverpool Wins Premier League Title After 30-Years

Published

on

Jurgen Klopp’s high-flying Liverpool claimed its 19th Premier League title on Wednesday. Manchester City’s 1-2 defeat at Chelsea confirmed the championship for the Reds, who had an unassailable lead at the top of the table with seven matches left to play.

The Reds ended its 30-year drought for a top-flight league crown after narrowly finishing second in the 2018-19 season by a solitary point.

Liverpool put the disappointment behind by setting the pace at the top of the table from the outset with a 27-match unbeaten streak where it dropped just two points from a possible 81. Its only defeat of the campaign came away to Watford in February.

Despite no major signings to add to in the off-season, Klopp’s men put the chasing City and Leicester City out of their reach. The forward trio of Mohamed Salah (17 goals), Sadio Mane (15) and Roberto Firmino (8) continued from where they left off last season when they scored a combined tally of 56 goals.

The defense marshaled by captain Virgil van Dijk and goalkeeper Alisson Becker has let in the fewest number of goals (21) and kept 14 clean sheets.

Liverpool was made to wait for the title with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic halting the season in March with the Reds just two wins away. There were suggestions of the season’s standing being decided on the points-per-game basis or being null-and-voided but the competition was resumed in June with the remaining matches played behind closed doors.

From its remaining matches, Liverpool can break plenty of records and set a benchmark in the honor’s list of Premier League champions. The Reds can break the most number of wins (32), most points (100), most home wins (18) and biggest title-winning margin (19 points).

At least 50 people have been killed and over 2,500 injured after a massive explosion erupted in the Beirut port area, damaging buildings and vehicles in Lebanon.

Lebanon’s health minister, Hamad Hassan said — the figures were “preliminary estimates,” while adding that the blasts had caused a ‘very high number of injuries’ and huge damage.

The explosion happened at around 6pm local time at the city’s port, where warehouses are believed to contain explosive materials.

Dramatic footage posted on social media shows smoke billowing from a building in the port area before an enormous fireball explodes into the sky, sending a vast shockwave across the city that was heard and felt as far away as Cyprus – more than 200km (180 miles) away.

Manchester United And Jadon Sancho ‘Agree Terms On A Five-Year Contract Worth £340, 000 Per Week’

Published

on

Manchester United have reportedly agreed on terms on a five-year deal worth £340,000-a-week with Jadon Sancho.

The England international and Borussia Dortmund forward is on the verge of joining United with the two clubs in advanced talks over a deal worth £108million.

According to BILD, Sancho has now put pen to paper on personal terms and all that needs to be determined before the deal can go through is the structure of the transfer.

Other reports claimed United would pay £63m upfront and then £27m and £18m over the next two summers.

Negotiations are still ongoing but are expected to be finished within the next week, with Dortmund set to make a staggering profit having signed the winger for just £8m from United’s arch-rivals Manchester City in 2017.

A fee of £108m for the 20-year-old would see him become the most expensive player bought by an English club, topping the £89m Manchester United paid to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.

The deal would also see Sancho become the club’s second-highest paid player behind David de Gea and the third top earner in the Premier League.

Sancho registered 17 goals and 17 assists across 32 Bundesliga games last season.
