The day Manchester United fans have been dreading for months arrived yesterday.
Liverpool were confirmed league title winners for the first time in 30 years after Manchester City were defeated 2-1 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Pep Guardiola’s side were defeated 2-1, guaranteeing United fans’ worst nightmare whilst also making the race for a top-four finish that much harder with Frank Lampard’s Chelsea going five points clear.
The result prompted wild celebrations on Merseyside with fans breaking social distancing guidelines to gather outside Anfield.
While United fans have largely remained quiet on social media for obvious reasons, there was one thing that Reds could have a slight dig at.
Liverpool players wore ‘Champions 19-20’ shirts after they were confirmed Premier League winners, which James Milner posted an image of on social media.
Perhaps it wasn’t the most clever design to celebrate an end of 30 years of hurt, with United leading their fiercest rivals by 20 titles to 19 overall.
United fans can only hope that this title isn’t the start of a dominant Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp and that United can close the gap considerably next season.

Nice to see them putting the titles theyve won next to the titles we’ve won on the back of their shirt.
