The title comes after a three-month suspension in play in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, just as it was nearly certain Liverpool would stay atop the table at the conclusion of the remaining matches.

Liverpool's win was celebrated by LeBron James, who has owned a two percent stake in the club since 2011 after his marketing firm agreed to a joint venture with the group that bought the team, Fenway Sports Partners.
