With Liverpool's 2019-20 title now mathematically secured, Sports Mole looks at when they will be awarded a trophy they have coveted for 30 years.

Liverpool have been crowned champions of England for the 19th time, and the first since 1989-90.

The Reds ended their 30-year wait for a top-flight crown in record-breaking style, securing the title with seven matches of their season still remaining - two games quicker than the previous best.

Manchester City's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night ensured that Liverpool are now mathematically uncatchable, boasting a 23-point lead over the previous champions with only 21 points left to play for.

In a coincidental quirk of the fixture list, Liverpool's next match comes against the team they have just usurped as kings of England, with Man City hosting the new champions at the Etihad Stadium on July 2.

However, the Reds will have to wait longer than that to get their hands on the trophy once and for all, with the ceremony usually reserved for the final home game of the campaign.

Chelsea - the team who effectively secured the title for Liverpool - are the final visitors to Anfield this season, with the two clubs meeting on the weekend of July 18.

Liverpool will receive the Premier League trophy for the very first time on that day, although it could be a trophy presentation with a difference due to safety protocols surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Fans will not be allowed inside Anfield with the remainder of the campaign due to be played behind closed doors, although thousands flocked to the stadium on Thursday night to celebrate the title triumph.
