Liverpool, the champions of England are set to lift the premier league trophy after their final home game of an historic season ended in a eight-goal thriller.

Naby Keita’s stunning blast added to by a trademark, exquisite Trent Alexander-Arnold free-kick and Georginio Wijnaldum’s fine volley gave the Reds a 3-0 lead.

But, Frank Lampard’s side pulled one back in first-half stoppage time through Olivier Giroud. The match settled 3-1 at halftime.

The Reds’ three-goal cushion was restored as Firmino powered in Alexander-Arnold’s pinpoint cross with his head, but Chelsea quickly pulled themselves back to within two as Giroud squared for Abraham to slot in.

With their sights set on a top-four finish, Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic struck to hand the visitors a route to an unlikely point

However, from a Chelsea free-kick deep in home territory, the Reds launched a rapid breakaway that allowed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to complete a classy counter-attack late on to secure a club-record 31st Premier League victory of the campaign.
