The Reds have rolled to a comfortable victory in 2019/20, with an enormous gap between them and second-placed Manchester City – currently, the two teams stand 21 points apart.

With fans unable to attend games at the end of the campaign, many had wondered how the trophy presentation would look, but Sky Sports have confirmed they will air Liverpool v Chelsea on their popular free channel, Pick TV.

The match kicks off at 8:15pm, meaning the trophy lift should take place by 10pm, much to the delight of Reds fans around the world.

Sky had been in discussions with Liverpool Football Club and the Premier League over the best way to open up the spectacle to all, with a decision made.
