Watch Full Highlight: Liverpool 5-3 Chelsea

Liverpool overcame Chelsea in one of the season’s most entertaining matches of the season on a night of celebration at Anfield stadium.

Before lifting the Premier League trophy for the first time in 30 years, Jurgen Klopp’s side knocked five past their visitors and conceded three.

Naby Keita’s powerful effort from range, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s stunning free-kick and Georginio Wijnaldum’s strike following a corner appeared to put Liverpool on course for victory.

But Olivier Giroud continued his fine form by pulling one back in half-time stoppage time.

And though Roberto Firmino netted his first league goal at Anfield for the season,Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic reduced the deficit to just one goal with 17 minutes remaining.

However, the champions showed their mettle to weather a late flurry of attacks and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain secured the victory with an incisive counter-attack.

Chelsea, meanwhile, remains third position in the Premier League table despite suffered defeats to Premier League champions after both Leicester City and Manchester United drop points in their recent match.
