Liverpool wonder year
The last twelve months has seen Liverpool lift their first Premier League title in 30 years, just months after taking the world crown.
Jürgen Klopp masterminded the club to an record breaking title win.
It was both the earliest and latest a team has ever secured the championship; that is to say it took us the fewest games but the season was delayed into the summer.
The Reds won the title with such ferocity that fans and pundits were debating the side’s place in history as one of the greatest teams we’ve seen.

There would’ve certainly been more records broken had their rhythm not been interrupted by the necessary pause in play.
