Liverpool beat Chelsea in cracker before receiving Premier League trophy

Firmino’s goal was his first at Anfield in the league this season

Liverpool beat Chelsea in a eight-goal thriller on the night the Reds’ 30-year wait to get their hands on the English top-flight trophy ended.

Naby Keita, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Georginio Wijnaldum put them in charge before Olivier Giroud pulled one back.

It was 4-1 thanks to Roberto Firmino, then 4-3 courtesy of Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic, before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sealed it for the Reds.

Chelsea still need a point to seal a spot in next season’s Champions League.
