CELEBRATIONS could be heard across parts of Warrington last night as Liverpool won their first league title since 1990 - without even kicking a ball.

An emotional Jurgen Klopp said winning the club's Premier League title was 'more than he ever dreamed of' after the trophy was secured without them kicking a ball.

Manchester City's 2-1 defeat at Chelsea handed the club their 19th championship after waiting three decades.

Residents in Penketh, Great Sankey and Chapelford were among those celebrating, with fireworks heard across the area.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, an emotional Klopp said: "It's the best thing I can imagine and more than I could have ever dreamed of," the Reds manager told Sky Sports News as he fought back tears of emotion.

"I have no words, it's unbelievable. It's much more than I ever thought would be possible, becoming champion with this club is absolutely incredible."

And delivering a message to fans, he added: "It is for you out there. It's all here (touching his heart) and all here (touching his head). It is a joy to do it for you."

Klopp said on Wednesday night he would tune into the Chelsea-City game for tactical purposes only as they were both future opponents, but he relented and he and his squad assembled at Formby Hall, close to his home on Merseyside, to watch as a group.

And as hundreds of fans began to gather at Anfield the squad's celebrations started in earnest when the final whistle blew at Stamford Bridge not long after Chelsea's Willian drove home the penalty to make it 2-1 with City down to 10 men after Fernandinho was sent off for handball.
